Good-natured drama-of-the-day with Mary Tyler Moore as a feisty old widow who finds a baby abandoned on her doorstep. Her maternal instinct is still strong but she's thankful to get a little child-rearing help from a young handyman who's looking to make a fresh start. Gently moving.
Mary Tyler Moore
It's shocking to see Mary Tyler Moore playing an eightysomething widow haunted by memories of her beloved brother's suicide.
Into her life comes ex-con handyman Skip (Waite), who befriends an abandoned baby. The infant sets off soft-focus memories and confronting past unhappiness for these two lonely people.
Though it's hard to suspend disbelief (as if anyone could go to work hiding a baby in a sling!), this is competent rainy-day viewing.
