Part of BAMcinématek series Hot Dern!
Directed by Michael Ritchie | 1975

With Bruce Dern, Barbara Feldon, Michael Kidd

“Smile, which is Mr. Ritchie's best film to date… questions the quality of our fun, while adding to it.”
—Vincent Canby, The New York Times

In this darkly hilarious satire about the world of small-town beauty pageants, 23 contestants congregate in Santa Rosa, CA, for the annual Young American Miss Pageant, sponsored in part by RV salesman Big Bob (Bruce Dern, displaying an under-utilized gift for comedy). A unique and unjustly neglected cult classic, Smile is “amusingly indulgent and generous in a way few current American films are: one has to look to East Europe (especially the work of Milos Forman) for a similar quality of ironic compassion” (Time Out London).
