Book Signing and Peter Bart & Cameron Crowe In Person!
HAROLD AND MAUDE

A film journalist and Paramount executive who played a key role in the production of numerous touchstones of the 1970s, Peter Bart has been an integral part of the American film industry for decades. Under his vice presidency of production at Paramount Pictures, such classics as ROSEMARY'S BABY, TRUE GRIT, HAROLD AND MAUDE, THE GODFATHER, PAPER MOON and FUN WITH DICK AND JANE (which Bart personally produced) came to be. Bart's career in film journalism is on par with his studio record, as he had a two-decade tenure (1989-2009) as chief editor of the trade paper Variety.

Book signing of Bart’s 'Infamous Players: A Tale of Movies, the Mob (and Sex)' at 6:30 PM across the street at Every Picture Tells a Story, followed by a screening of HAROLD AND MAUDE and discussion with Peter Bart and ALMOST FAMOUS director Cameron Crowe.

Discussion following with Peter Bart and Cameron Crowe.
HAROLD AND MAUDE
1971, Paramount, 91 min, Dir: Hal Ashby

Producer Robert Evans fought hard for nonconformist editor-turned-filmmaker Hal Ashby to be allowed to direct this wildly offbeat romance between suicidal youngster Bud Cort and eccentric, 80-year-old Ruth Gordon. The result is one of the most poignant and subversive films of the New Hollywood era.


Screening format: 35mm
