Larry Karaszewski on

To Find a Man

Released 1972
Distributor Columbia Pictures

A sweet, poignant little movie that hasn’t been on anybody’s radar since it sank from view in 1972. Notable for its frank treatment of teen sexuality and abortion, this is the kind of studio movie they stopped making a few years later. Pamela Sue Martin’s film debut and a US entry in the Cannes Film Festival. The movie’s in color but this trailer, taken from a substandard vhs source, is black-and-white and bears the exploitation title Sex and the Teenager.
