Herbert Ross directed and Peter Hyams wrote and produced this comedy/drama about a small town girl’s sordid adventures in the Windy City circa 1971. Starring Candice Bergen as an office temp-turned-hooker and James Caan and Peter Boyle as the men in her life, the film would have qualified as a pre-code cautionary tale in the 1930s.
