Village Voice cartoonist Jules Feiffer’s black comic look at dysfunctional 1970s New Yorkers was a bit too much for audiences at the time, but today it looks like a documentary. A Broadway flop, it was well received in London as a Royal Shakespeare Company production, then director Alan Arkin successfully revived it Off-Broadway, winning Feiffer an Obie award. Elliot Gould bought the film rights and it was shot with many of the theatrical cast.
