This cerebral, quirky comedy explores midlife crisis through a rock-music composer's perspective. Screen legend Dustin Hoffman (The Graduate) plays a neurotic songwriter at the peak of his career, can't seem to love anybody - least of all himself. He becomes increasingly depressed as his delusional paranoia - fueled by a mysterious stranger who has been bad-mouthing him. Even his therapist (Jack Warden, The Verdict) can't seem to help. However, when he meets the eccentric, aspiring actress (Barbara Harris, The War Between Men and Women), he realizes it's his last chance for true love. For his role as the prolific singer-songwriter, Hoffman performed live (in character) with Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show at the iconic rock palace, Fillmore East, in New York City. Comedy great Dom DeLuise (Blazing Saddles, Silent Movie) co-stars in this cult classic directed by Ulu Grosbard (True Confessions). Barbara Harris was nominated for a 1972 Best Supporting Academy Award for her wonderful performance.
