LACMA presents Tuesday afternoon screenings of classic films throughout the year as part of the Tuesday Matinees series. Every month features a distinct theme.
A spoiled and self-absorbed man who has squandered his inheritance, Henry Graham (Walter Matthau) is desperate to find a way to maintain his lavish lifestyle. Henry sees an opportunity when he meets Henrietta Lowell (Elaine May), an awkward and bookish heiress. Though Henry courts Henrietta, he has no intention of remaining with her, and he develops a surprisingly sinister scheme. As Henry attempts to execute his plan, he finds that seeing it through may not be as easy as he had thought.
1971, 102 minutes, 35mm | Directed by Elaine May; produced by Hillard Elkins, Howard W. Koch, and Joseph Manduke; written by Elaine May; with Walter Matthau, Elaine May, Jack Weston, George Rose, and James Coco
