Ashby The Great
Ashby was Ashby from the word go. Pristine without being precious,
intelligently beautiful without being french, funny, funny, funny,
bitter, provoking and sad. You can mix all of that and quite simply
call it Ashby. What a delight! Elizabeth Bergner was suppose to play
the part, marvelously written by Colin Higgins. Hal Ashby flew to
London for a meeting with her, she didn't quite get it, she said aloud
she couldn't work with a director who looked like Jesus Christ. Well
sorry for her, but lucky for Ruth Gordon and lucky for us. As I saw the
film after Rosemary's Baby I was kind of worried for Bud Cort for a
little while. Ruth Gordon made her name as Dolly Levy in Thornton
Wilder's "The Matchmaker" got an Oscar for Rosemary's Baby, wrote
Adam's Rib with husband Garson Kanin. She was a woman for the ages and
"Harold and Maude" is her present, her own tribute to an extraordinary
life. I've shown the film to kids, 10, 12 years old and they fall in
love with her. Bud Cort is the perfect foil for her designs. Cat
Stevens and a scrumptious performance by Vivian Pickles, the
unforgettable Isadora of Ken Russell's film of Duncan's life, wrap up
this exquisite Hal Ashby masterpiece..

Yes, the soundtrack of the movie was (mostly unknown) Cat Stevens songs,
they somehow fit the story like a glove.
I detest superlatives in film critiques -- those people who bandy about
terms like "the best," "the greatest," and so forth, must speak thusly
their breakfast every morning. I will say that H&M is one of the most
unique films I have ever seen. I didn't see it until nine years after it
came out, but it has stayed with me ever since. This is Bud Cort's
masterpiece, and ranks highly with the best work Ruth Gordon has ever
Harold, whose life is so deadly dull that he fantasizes about death as a
release, is finally confronted with the real thing. It is his trip to
realization that provides the sheer enjoyment of this story. It is funny
and poignant at the same time.
I think you'll like the old and definitely non-commercial Cat Stevens
Give it a try if you like offbeat romances..
