(ABC, 4/13/1979, 120 mins). This fact based drama about a pair of mentally retarded young adults who face angry resistance when they decide to marry is virtually identical to the TV movie “No Other Love,” which premiered three weeks earlier. Rock singer and teen idol Shaun Cassidy made his dramatic acting debut in this film. Robert Meyers’ 1979 book was based upon his mildly retarded brother Roger.
