Those of us who grew up being less than "beautiful", can relate to Natalie all too well. We were unattractive, for whatever reason, and needed to feel loved and wanted. The progression of the film was perfect in the way it portrayed Natalie finding her own self, in both worth and confidence. The parents we excellently scripted and acted, as well as Farentino's character. It makes you laugh and cry at just the right times, and leaves you with a sense of being able to make the changes in your life that you didn't think were possible. I haven't seen this film since it's original release, but it has obviously made a tremendous impact upon me. I hope someone has the sense to release it on tape.

Part of this movie was shot right across the street from me, in an apartment building on Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn, NY, when I was a kid. One of my friends lived there, and when I came out of his apartment, I talked to Patty Duke who was sitting with some crew in the lobby, for a couple of minutes before they ushered me out. I was a major fan of the Patty Duke show, so I was thrilled, and she was very nice. It's the only movie I can ever remember shot in my neighborhood, and it caused quite a thrill. I don't remember much about the movie except the Brooklyn street scenes of neighborhoods I was familiar with. I'd love to see this movie again to relive some of those moments. Is it ever played on TV on one of the movie channels that specialize in older movies like AMC or Turner Classic Movies?

&quot;Me, Natalie&quot; is very much a film of two times: literally, the late 1960&#39;s (in which it takes place) and figuratively, post-adolescence, which it&#39;s heroine grapples with throughout the film. Along the literal lines, the film sensitively deals with the generation gap during the era in which it was perhaps most severe. Impressively, ageism is never cause for condescension in this film. Not so impressively, a gooey Henry Mancini soundtrack and some maudlin wanna-be-romantic photography date it pretty badly. As a coming of age story, the film is very much a contemporary of &quot;The Sterile Cuckoo&quot;, being about a relative misfit who must find what works for her as she enters adulthood. How one feels about these eras will invariably affect how one responds to the film.<br/><br/>It&#39;s chief assets are it&#39;s vivid New York atmosphere and it&#39;s terrific cast. Patty Duke carries this film as effortlessly as Sandy Dennis or Natalie Wood carried earlier films of a similar nature, and she is surrounded by a terrific supporting cast. Fans of &quot;The Sopranos&quot; will enjoy seeing the late Nancy Marchand, who is superb as a very different type of mother than Livia Soprano. Martin Balsam and Elsa Lanchester are also memorable in brief appearances. James Farentino is effective as the artist Natalie falls in love with, and Al Pacino is charismatic in his first screen role as a cad she meets at a dance. The entire cast works beautifully, and makes a look at this film well worth while.
