Synopsis

Lonesome movie scenes

In New York, Mary is a telephone operator who lives alone and is lonely. Jim is a factory worker who lives alone and is lonely. Each decides to go to the beach (presumably Coney Island) and both are captivated with each other, eventually realizing, moreover, that they really do like each other. Having gone from loneliness to finding love, enjoying the company of each other and having fun, they are – due to exigent circumstances and hundreds of visitors to the beach that day – both separated from the other. Only knowing each others first name, and having only a small photo of each other, Jim and Mary are desperate to find each other. Will these two lonesome individuals who have discovered their love for each other...lose it all that same day?
