The Ritz

On outrageously over-the-top comedy time capsule about mobsters, mistaken identities, missed connections, and men, men, men. With his gangster brother-in-law out to get him, a schlubby garbageman goes into hiding in “the last place on Earth anybody would ever think of looking for me,” a gay bathhouse, where he soon becomes the unlikely object of everyone’s affections. Playwright Terrence McNally updates his Broadway hit for the big screen and brings some of the original stage stars with him for a funny farce directed by Richard Lester. With character actor Jack Weston in the lead role, Rita Moreno as the local chanteuse, a hunky F. Murray Abraham in a teeny tiny towel, Treat Williams doing a Mickey Mouse voice as a himbo private dick, and Jerry Stiller as the mob man calling the shots.

Partners

Mr. Macho meets his mismatch! Ryan O’Neal is Benson, 100% tough guy cop. John Hurt is not. When a string of murders hit Los Angeles’s gay community, Sgt. Benson and gay police clerk Officer Kerwin are forced to go undercover together as a couple. Kerwin is committed to cracking the case, but keeping Benson away from certain womanly distractions may be the most dangerous task of all. Ryan O’Neal and John Hurt are the oddest team on the squad, but they make great Partners!
