Suddenly, Love is a tried and true "class conscious" TV movie set in the Manhattan of the 1960s. Cindy Williams stars as a Brooklyn girl who cuts the family strings at age 16 to head for the Big Apple. While studying to be an architect, Williams falls in love with a wealthy Yale law school professor (Paul Shenar). The prof's blueblood mother (Joan Bennett), aware that her son has a bad heart, is convinced that Williams is a fortune-hunter--a conviction that is intensified when the girl has a baby. Eileen Heckart costars as the heroine's earthy mom. Produced by glossmeister Ross Hunter, Suddenly, Love repeatedly belies its title: nothing in this lugubrious, talky film happens suddenly.
