Directed by Hal Ashby | 1970

With Beau Bridges, Lee Grant, Louis Gossett Jr., Diana Sands, Pearl Bailey

WASP-y rich kid Elgar Enders (Bridges) buys an apartment building in then-gritty Park Slope with plans to evict the current residents and turn it into a ritzy home for himself. When the black tenants refuse to move out, however, Enders is launched into a series of comic misadventures that begin to change his outlook on life and attitude about race. Hal Ashby’s pointed comedy strikingly predicts contemporary concerns regarding gentrification and presents a nuanced, daring exploration of race relations inAmericathat is surprisingly ahead of its time.
