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.
