Synopsis / Plot
The last thing widower George Schneider expects is to fall in love again so soon after losing his spouse. Recent divorcee Jennie MacLaine also would like to take some time before starting another relationship. So, of course, their 10-day, whirlwind courtship results in matrimony. However, it doesn't take much time for Jennie to realize that her new husband is hardly ready for wedded bliss. Wracked with guilt and feeling "unfaithful" to his first wife's memory, George simply can't feel happy. Will Jennie have the patience to fight the ghost of her predecessor, and help George feel he's deserving of love?

Playwright Neil Simon based this comedy/drama on his own second marriage -- which began in the wake of his first wife's death from cancer.
