Part of BAMcinématek series Hot Dern!
Directed by Sydney Pollack | 1969

With Jane Fonda, Michael Sarrazin, Susannah York, Gig Young, Red Buttons

“A very striking movie, with vestiges of the hard sarcasm of the thirties lower-depths humor—those acrid sick jokes that make one wince and laugh simultaneously.”
—Pauline Kael, The New Yorker

A Depression-era dance marathon becomes an allegory for the bleakness of life in this hard-hitting drama. Down-on-their-luck dance partners Gloria (Jane Fonda) and Robert (Michael Sarrazin) attempt to hoof their way to a $1,500 grand prize over the course of a grueling, six-day contest in which the participants are driven to extremes by hunger and hopelessness. Bruce Dern is one of the many desperate marathoners in this tour de force of ensemble acting that was nominated for a whopping nine Academy Awards.
