Burbank, CA: American Broadcasting Company [ABC], 1979. Collection of three vintage studio still photographs and two advertising mockups from the 1979 film. Both the photographs and the advertising mockups have been hand-retouched, adhered to a backing board, and prepared for use in advertising.
A stark black comedy in which a man who is caretaker for his mentally disabled mother becomes increasingly frustrated with his inability to have a love life due to her interference. The first of Carl Reiner's later directorial efforts intended to push the envelope, the film includes a naked male bottom (heavily represented in the advertising materials), an ending that hints on the incestuous, and graphic descriptions of a US general's genocidal acts against the Vietnamese. Set in New York.
Photos 8 x 10 inches (20.5 x 25.5 cm) on mat board sized variously between 10 x 12 inches and 10 x 15 inches. Good to Near Fine condition, with one photo loose from its backing.
