One of America’s greatest comic legends, Elaine May, made her debut as writer and director in the wonderful A New Leaf.
Unanimously acclaimed from the start, but unavailable for many years, it now stands as a classic alongside Harold and
Maude, Bananas and M*A*S*H* as a key film in the new direction of American screen comedy in the 1970s.
The great Walter Matthau stars as Henry, a once-rich playboy who has obliviously spent his entire inheritance. Desperate
to marry into further financial support, he meets Henrietta (Elaine May), a shy, awkward, though independently wealthy
botany professor. What follows is a giddy tale of dubious legal advice, ruthless skullduggery and ferns.
A most unorthodox romantic comedy, stuffed with deadpan hilarity and brilliant comic invention, The Masters of Cinema
Series is proud to present its UK home video premiere in a new Dual-Format edition.
