Do you take this woman?'' ''Yes, for everything she's got'' 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 skulduggery 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 premire in a new Dual-Format edition. SPECIAL FEATURES including: New high-definition digital transfer with exclusive image restoration Uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray The Bluebeard of Happiness, a new video essay by critic David Cairns 32-PAGE BOOKLET featuring new and vintage writing on the film, and archival images Review ''A film of such wit and comic invention that it belongs among the great American comedies'' --Village Voice''the entire project is touched by a fine and knowing madness'' --Vincent Canby, The New York Times''Hilarious, and cockeyed, and warm.'' --Roger Ebert
