Goodbye Girl — David Gates
Given how popular the movie was on its release in 1977, I’m surprised “The Goodbye Girl” is so seldom heard of these days.
It’s not even like it was a niche-interest art house film. It was written by Neil Simon, one of the leading playwrights of his day. And starred Marsha Mason, a four-times Academy Award nominee and one of the leading actresses of her generation.
