Based on John Steinbeck's novel about a skid row community full of lovable tramps and prostitutes. Nolte is the ex-baseball star turned marine biologist whose life is changed by the love of a good woman, Winger. Sentimental comedies must walk a fine line between mawkishness and insipidity: although this one slips off the wire occasionally, a strong script, careful treatment and some spirited performances keep it aloft. John Huston serves as narrator.

Frank McRae should have gotten an Academy Award for his Hazel role. This film is a keeper.
