Ruth Gordon as Maude is perfectly cast. She is charming and lovable and dare I say sexy? By sexy I mean the self-confidence, warmth, and openness a person gives off. Maude is my new role model and that scares me. Bud Cort as Harold is equally lovable. His tall, lanky physique is in stark contrast to small and round Gordon, but it's fun to watch his stiff demeanor become quite relaxed by the end of the film. Does anyone else think he looks like actor Topher Grace from That '70s Show?
If you've never seen this movie, watch it soon. If you haven't seen it in awhile, then watch it again. This movie is definitely in my list of top five favorites. If nothing else watch it for the fashion and hearses.
P.S. Impress your hip friends with a Harold and Maude poster in a foreign language.
