“Loving” is a 1970 movie starring George Segal, Eva Marie Saint and Keenan Wynn.
If you’ve never heard of it — and I sure haven’t — here’s a review from IMDB:
George Segal (not as scruffy as he typically had been at the start of the decade) plays a troubled husband and father suffering through career uncertainty who cheats on his wife (Eva Marie Saint, cast yet again as a doormat-spouse). Segal is an affable screen presence, but we never learn much about what makes him tick, what causes him to hurt the ones he loves.
Talented director Irvin Kershner hit a few snags in his career; here, the semi-improvisational ground he’s treading desperately needs a center, or a leading character we can attach some emotions to. The dramatic finale is well-realized, and Segal’s comeuppance is provocative and thoughtful–at least something is HAPPENING; overall, it’s a cynical slice of the marriage blahs, one that probably played a lot fresher in 1970 than it does today.
Somehow, Andy Laskin found it on TCM. (Turner’s definition of “classic movies” is quite broad.)
Suddenly, he spotted a familiar locale:
Nor is it as well remembered as (my favorite) “Manny’s Orphans.”
But it reminds us of a time when nearly every Westporter commuted to New York.
And of a train station that — except for that long-gone wooden building — still looks almost the same as it did, 50 years ago.
