Harold And Maude (Masters of Cinema) (Blu-ray) Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

A glorious mixture of the riotously morbid and joyously life-affirming Hal Ashby's Harold and Maude was an instant counter-culture favourite on its release in 1971 and whose popularity has spread in the decades since to become simply one of the most beloved cult comedies ever made. Following the burgeoning relationship between the gloomy 20-year-old suicide-staging Harold (Bud Cort) suffocated by his wealthy homestead and the sprightly octogenarian Maude (Ruth Gordon) whose bohemian wiles and open-arms approach to living enable his first gentle steps towards... embracing existence. With its brilliant script by Colin Higgins a magnificent standard-setting soundtrack by Cat Stevens wonderful performances and Hal Ashby's stunning directorial control Harold and Maude combines a jet-black comic edge with romance philosophy satire and beauty to form a masterfully funny and moving whole. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present this masterpiece for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK.

Hal Ashby directs this cult black comedy starring Bud Cort and Ruth Gordon. Harold (Cort) is a death-obsessed teenager who hangs around in cemeteries and drives a hearse. When he attends a funeral and meets his polar opposite Maude (Gordon), a life-loving 79-year-old, a strange love affair ensues. However, the offbeat nature of their pairing and their defiance of social convention soon causes upset all around. The cast also includes Vivian Pickles, Cyril Cusack and Charles Tyner.
