Directed by Jonathan Demme | 1980

With Paul Le Mat, Mary Steenburgen, Jason Robards

Balancing gentle satire with a genuine feeling for middle-American life, Demme’s breakthrough plays like a Preston Sturges screwball for the early 80s. Inspired by a true story, Melvin and Howard follows luckless Utah milkman Melvin Dummar (Le Mat) through years of ups and downs following a life-altering brush with none other than Howard Hughes. Highlight: Mary Steenburgen, in an Oscar-winning performance, tap dancing to the Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction.”
