Additional Info

Roscoe, retarded and in his fifties, has to move from the rooming house he's lived in for years as Mrs. Clooney who runs it must retire due to illness. His banker brother George, remembering the pledge he made to their deceased mother, tries to get Roscoe to move in with his family. Roscoe refuses to give up his independence and tells George he can manage; he does odd jobs to pay his expenses and he has friends. George discovers this is true and reluctantly concedes he is indeed self sufficient, realizing that for the first time that some mentally retarded people can make their own way in life with the help of kind and understanding people.
