Director: Hal Ashby Run Time: 91 min. Rating: PG Release Year: 1971
Starring: Bud Cort, Charles Tyner, Cyril Cusack, Ruth Gordon, Vivian Pickles
Here’s the classic cult film that features one of the screen’s most unlikely pairs. It will defy everything you’ve ever seen or known about screen lovers. Bud Cort is Harold, a young man bored with wealth but interested in death. Ruth Gordon is Maude, a wonderful old rascal who can see nothing but good intentions in the world. Hal Ashby (Coming Home, Being There) directs from Colin Higgins’ (Foul Play) first script. These assets, coupled with an uplifting musical score provided by Cat Stevens, make Harold and Maude an outrageously funny and affecting film that proves love has no boundaries.
