Actors, like baseball pitchers, learn to do more with less as they grow older. George C. Scott, following in the footsteps of such thespian fireballers as Rod Steiger and Anthony Quinn, has mastered the cagey economy of experience. In this movie he plays an elderly hardware-store owner who's despondent over losing his business. Using mostly his eyes, Scott conveys the man's bewilderment and anguish as he watches the world rushing over him like a freight train.

The plot suggests a geriatric version of the theatrical film Regarding Henry as Scott loses his memory but finds serenity as an amnesiac Mr. Fix-It in a Latino migrant-worker camp.

Beverly (My Three Sons) Garland and the always charming Hector Elizondo costar in the film, a delight for melodrama fans.
