Lovers And Other Strangers tells in a delightful way of the marriage of a young couple who have been making it on the sly for over a year. Comedy vignettes reveal amusing and compassionate fashion the assorted marital foibles of members of both families.

Bonnie Bedelia and Michael Brandon, the couple in question, have their own life style which rubs against but does not destroy relations with their respective parents. Gig Young and Cloris Leachman are her folks, while Richard Castellano and Bea Arthur are his.

Screenplay [from the play by Joseph Bologna and Renee Taylor] is essentially a string of intercut vignettes about the young couple’s relatives. On the girl’s side of things, Young has been having a side affair with Anne Jackson for some years; she is perfect.
