Croton has produced many fine writers. Perhaps one of the most well known is Joseph Heller, of Catch-22 fame. Click on the images, which include a 1967 article featuring Heller and promos from the 1970 movie, to learn more.
The film was directed by Mike Nichols, and screenwriter Buck Henry (also in the cast) worked on the film script for two years, converting Heller's complex novel to the medium of film.
And it was worth the effort.
The cast included Alan Arkin, Bob Balaban, Martin Balsam, Richard Benjamin, Italian actress Olimpia Carlisi, French comedian Marcel Dalio, Art Garfunkel (his acting debut), Jack Gilford, Charles Grodin, Bob Newhart, Anthony Perkins, Paula Prentiss, Martin Sheen, Jon Voight, and Orson Welles.

You would think I would have known this, but I didn't. Have to see this movie again. as I recall, we saw it at the Hollowbrook but I'm not 100% sure. A lot of the 70's is kind of blurry!ReplyDelete
