Directed by Arthur Penn | 1965

With Warren Beatty, Alexandra Stewart, Hurd Hatfield

“An auspicious, impressive, and singular achievement”
—A.V. Club

Two years before Bonnie and Clyde, Arthur Penn directed Warren Beatty in this existential, Euro-chic puzzle film. Beatty is a Detroit stand-up comic who, believing he has crossed the mob, flees to Chicago where he lives in constant fear of retaliation. Ghislain Cloquet’s stylish monochrome cinematography radiates New Wave cool, while sax great Stan Getz wails over Eddie Sauter’s modernist jazz score. 

“Warren Beatty is one movie star who constantly took chances on offbeat projects, and his first collaboration with Arthur Penn is perhaps the oddest. Dismissed for years as an impenetrable misfire, this intriguing Kafka-esque nightmare about a stand-up comic on the run (from himself?) is finally beginning to be appreciated as the cinematic jazz spiritual it really is. Today it’s hard to believe this kind of movie could have been released by a major studio.” —Joe Dante
