A Thousand Clowns DVD (1965)
Determined to avoid employment, Murray Burns (Jason Robards), an eccentric former TV writer, lives with his 12-year-old nephew, Nick (Barry Gordon), in a messy New York City apartment. When Nick's unconventional home life is discovered, Murray comes under the scrutiny of social worker Sandra Markowitz (Barbara Harris), whom he quickly charms. Attempting to be responsible for both Nick and Sandra, Murray begrudgingly looks for a job -- but can he truly commit to a more conventional life?
Starring: Jason Robards, Barry Gordon, Barbara Harris
Viewer Quote: "This is a delightful and thought-provoking film. This movie grows up with you, but some things remain constant with every viewing: the film's stunning wit, its passion for authenticity (Murray's speech on the fire escape is a deeply moving plea to wake up and live), and its charmed performances. If you like Jason Robards, you will love him in this film. And Gene Saks, as the TV star Chuckles the Chipmunk, does some of the best comedy work I've seen anywhere. As a BONUS, this movie gives you a sidewalk-level, free-wheeling view of Manhattan when it wasn't so overpopulated and Lincoln Center was just being built. The satire and tragedy blend so well you will be caught laughing and crying at the same time throughout the movie.1000 Thumbs up!"
