If You Only Know The Late Arthur Hiller As The Director Of That Crap Movie Love Story, Try These Instead
Try these instead:
1) The Americanization of Emily (1964) — A tart anti-war comedy starring James Garner and Julie Andrews in arguably their finest roles.
2) The In-Laws (1979) — Peter Falk as a CIA agent, Alan Arkin as his impossibly buttoned-down in-law. The most underrated comedy of the 1970s.
3) The Hospital (1971) — A savage black comedy about the sorry state of American medicine starring George C. Scott and a very hot Diana Rigg.
4) The Out-of-Towners (1970) — A salesman and his wife (Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis) try to check into a hotel in New York for 101 hilarious minutes.
5) the very first episode of television's The Addams Family! You gotta love a guy who directed the very first episode of The Addams Family!
