Movie Info 

Leonard Gershe based his play Butterflies are Free on a real-life blind attorney. The film version stars Edward Albert as Don Baker, a self-reliant, sightless young man who becomes the object of affection for kooky Jill (Goldie Hawn). Spending most of the film in nothing but her underwear, Jill makes love to Don, then tries to help him break free from the smothering influence of his mother, a children’s-story writer (Eileen Heckart). The situation grows tense when Jill’s boyfriend (Paul Michael Glaser) enters the scene. Eileen Heckart won an Academy Award for her performance. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Butterfly Quote of the Day:

“I knew the day you met me,
I could love you if you let me,
Though you touched my cheek and said
how easy you’d forget me.
You said-
Butterflies are free,
and so are we…”
From the movie theme of
Butterflies are Free
