A New Leaf
Dir. Elaine May. 1971, 102 mins. 35mm. With Walter Matthau, Elaine May. As writer, star, and first-time director, May established herself as a distinctly original talent with this oddball romance and black comedy. Matthau plays a spoiled playboy who loses his wealth and plans to marry a klutzy botanist and murder her for her money.
