As his 30th birthday approaches, bored, rich and white Elgar Enders (Beau Bridges) decides to leave life with his wealthy parents and buys a New York tenement with plans to boot the residents and turn it into a deluxe bachelor pad. But as he befriends the locals, his new life could get in the way. Hal Ashby’s directorial debut is a pointed social commentary on race that’s both compelling and funny, featuring a potent screenplay by Bill Gunn that still feels timely today, and an excellent supporting cast including Lee Grant, Diana Sands, Pearl Bailey, and Louis Gossett Jr.

“No *#@!!* Navy’s going to give some poor **!!@* kid eight years in the #@!* brig without me taking him out for the time of his *#@!!* life.” Two Navy men (Jack Nicholson & Otis Young) on shore patrol are ordered to escort an 18-year-old Seaman (Randy Quaid) to military prison, but decide to show him one last good time along the way. Hal Ashby’s road picture is funny and profane, featuring an expletive-laden screenplay from Robert Towne, an all-timer performance from Nicholson as an anti-authoritarian Navy lifer, and cinematography from Michael Chapman in his first film as director of photography.
