Larry Karaszewski on

Get to Know Your Rabbit

Released 1972
Distributor Warner Bros.

One of Brian dePalma’s more obscure credits, this unappreciated attempt to turn Tommy Smothers into a movie star fizzled out. Filmed in 1970 after Hi Mom and before Sisters, it fell victim to a regime change at Warner Bros. and wasn’t released until 1972. But it’s still an offbeat anti-establishment spoof that’s now finally available on dvd through Warner Archive.
