Additional Information

THE HEARTBREAK KID (1972) DIR: Elaine May. SCR: Neil Simon. CAST: Charles Grodin, Cybill Shepherd, Jeannie Berlin. Lenny Cantrow (Grodin) is as socially ambitious as he is emotionally shallow, so much so that he throws over his bride (Berlin) during their honeymoon for another woman (Shepherd). Framed between the golden sun of Miami Beach and the frigid cold of Minnesota, May directs Neil Simon’s script and delivers a biting profile of modern romance, 1970s style: love during this decade will make you laugh while breaking your heart. 35mm, color, 104 min. Print courtesy of Academy Film Archive. A NEW LEAF (1971) DIR/SCR: Elaine May. CAST: Walter Matthau, Elaine May, Jack Weston, George Rose. May stars in her writing-directorial debut as Henrietta, an earnest but oblivious botanist- heiress, who is married to Henry (Matthau), a bankrupted millionaire plotting the murder of his bride for her fortune. This dark comedy rings with social satire poking fun at the midlife crises of the idle rich by employing all the conventions of a classic screwball comedy with its pratfalls, zany antics, miscommunications, and themes of deceit. 35mm, color, 102 min.
