A New Leaf 1971
Plot Henry Graham is a man with a problem: he has run through his entire inheritance, and is completely unequipped to provide for himself. His childhood guardian, Uncle Harry (a deliciously mean-spirited James Coco), refuses to give him a dime, and Henry, completely unwilling to exercise the only solution he sees--suicide-- devises a plan with the help of his imaginative butler: he can make money the old-fashioned way--he can marry it. With a temporary loan from Uncle Harry to tide him over, Henry has six weeks to find a bride, marry her, and repay the money, or else he must forfeit all his property to his uncle. With only days remaining, Henry meets clumsy, painfully shy heiress Henrietta Lowell (played by director Elaine May). She's the answer to his prayers--if only Henry can overcome the obstacles placed in his path by Uncle Harry, Henrietta's lawyer, and Henry's own reluctance to wed.... see A New Leaf on IMDb

[Note: some music has been changed for the home video version of this title.] This widely-admired film prompts many questions. Would the original 3-hour version have been better, with its unsavory murders? Or has the film benefited from the studio's pruning of Elaine "Ishtar" May's artistic liberties? Can a life devoted entirely to leisure be satisfying? Or must there be meaningful purpose behind one's existence? Are there really members of the upper crust who need to be vacuumed daily? Is Henrietta in fact only a pretend simpleton?
