Remembering Paul Mazursky and His Films

Paul Mazursky, who died Monday at age 84, received five Academy Award nominations - three for Best Original Screenplay (Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, Harry and Tonto, An Unmarried Woman), one for Best Adapted Screenplay (Enemies: A Love Story), and one for Best Picture (An Unmarried Woman).

To celebrate Mr. Mazursky's life and career, I'm featuring 10 of his most memorable films that he wrote and directed (in chronological order):

Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969) with Natalie Wood, Robert Culp, Elliott Gould and Dyan Cannon.

Alex in Wonderland (1970) with Donald Sutherland and Ellen Burstyn.

Blume in Love (1973) with George Segal, Susan Anspach, Kris Kristofferson and Marsha Mason.

Harry and Tonto (1974) with Art Carney, Ellen Burstyn and Larry Hagman.

Next Stop, Greenwich Village (1976) with Lenny Baker, Shelley Winters and Christopher Walken.

An Unmarried Woman (1978) with Jill Clayburgh, Alan Bates and Michael Murphy.

Willie and Phil (1980) with Michael Ontkean, Ray Sharkey and Margot Kidder.

Tempest (1982) with John Cassavetes, Gena Rowlands, Susan Sarandon and Molly Ringwald.

Down and Out in Beverly Hills (1986) with Nick Nolte, Bette Midler and Richard Dreyfuss.

Enemies, A Love Story (1989) with Ron Silver, Anjelica Huston and Lena Olin.

Some interesting work and of course the Monkees! I like a few of his later films but both Blume in Love and Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice were torture to sit through. I'm a huge Natalie Wood fan but that movie was awful!
