ESCAPE WITH YOUR LOVE INTO THE WORLD OF ROMANTIC MOVIES!
Harold and Maude (1971)
A self-absorbed, death-obsessed teen (Bud Cort) and a geriatric, high-on-life widow (Ruth Gordon) find love in this comical cult favorite. Hassled by his domineering mother (Vivian Pickles) to play the dating game, the morbid Harold would rather attend funerals, which is where he meets the feisty Maude (natch). The seemingly mismatched pair forms a bond that turns into a highly unconventional -- but ultimately satisfying -- romance.
One of my very Favorite movies of all time. Ruth Gordon's Maude is an icon of delicious positive energy. Their quirky romance is charming and funny AND life-altering for Harold.
Although a soundtrack album was never made, the movie is filled with the music of Cat Stevens, (when he was still Cat Stevens!) Some of the songs include: "When You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out"; "Where Do the Children Play?"; "On the Road to Find Out"; "Trouble"; "Don't Be Shy"; "Tea for the Tillerman"; "I Think I See The Light"; "I Wish, I Wish"; and "Miles from Nowhere".
Gene Wilder and Gilda Radner team up to blend their unique brands of comedy in this romantic, Hitchcock-style thriller. Wilder plays Michael, an innocent bystander turned victim turned hero; Kate (Radner) falls in love with him while looking for her brother's murderers. Pursued by a ruthless adversary intent on eliminating them, Michael and Kate embark on a bold mission that turns into one wild cross-country ride!
On my list to watch...Looking forward to seeing the Gene and Gilda chemistry...
