Tuesday Movie: Harold and Maude

Harold and Maude came out in 1971.  At it's heart it is a love story, but there's also a lot of death.  Most of it is of the faked death variety, but some is not.  It's a classic. There's a lot of Cat Stevens music, which is cool.  (One of my favorite songs is "Morning has Broken.")

I tried to find the official trailer but I'm not really sure what that is. I kind of liked this one. Apparently, it has some scenes that aren't in the film.


So, tomorrow is the Fourth of July.  I've got an interview with David Dow who wrote Autobiography of an Execution, so be sure to stop by and take a listen.  Be safe!

  1. Harold and Maude - one of my all time favorites - Maude is my role model --
    on another note, how about the movie Philadelphia (Tom Hanks) - that certainly has death in it.....

    1. Yeah, me too. I've been annoying my kids with the song, "If you want to be free, be free."

  3. I adored this movie when I first saw it, and I adore it just as much today. Quirky and witty and so, so lovely--a beautiful love story.
