THEY SHOOT HORSES, DON'T THEY?
1969, Walt Disney Co., 120 min, USA, Dir: Sydney Pollack

Based on the hard-boiled novel by Horace McCoy, director Sydney Pollack’s character study takes place during a claustrophobic, Depression-era dance marathon. Michael Sarrazin and Jane Fonda are the tragic couple determined to make it into the home stretch to win the much-needed prize money. With an Academy Award-winning performance by Gig Young as the marathon emcee. Co-starring Susannah York, Red Buttons, Bruce Dern, Severn Darden, and Al Lewis.
