The 1970s was a bountiful decade for good movies and good new filmmakers. Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorcese were just getting started then. Bob Fosse had transferred his talents from Broadway to the big screen. His choreography, editing and styling in Cabaret and All That Jazz had a major influence on MTV and VH1 music videos in the 1980s and '90s. It's still influential. Francis Ford Coppola gave us The Godfather. Roman Polanski took us to Chinatown. Woody Allen introduced us to Annie Hall. George Lucas got us involved with Star Wars. You got your money's worth when you went to the movies in the 1970s. Some '70s movies that do not get as much attention now as those I just listed are way better than some big budget fare we got on screens over the summer. One example of an overlooked treat is a very entertaining crime caper from the man who went on to direct Kramer vs. Kramer starring Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep and Places in the Heart, the film that brought Sally Field her second Academy Award. I highly recommend seeing Art Carney and Lily Tomlin in The Late Show, a neat and smart murder mystery written and directed by Robert Benton. This is one cool movie that has the added zest of terrific chemistry between veteran TV comic actor Carney (The Honeymooners) and the -- at the time -- new TV comic actress Tomlin (NBC's Laugh-In).
