The Fortune (Blu-ray) Indicator Ltd


This high-concept, big-budget screwball comedy directed by Mike Nichols (The GraduateWolf) stars Warren Beatty (Mickey OneBonnie and Clyde) as a slick con man and Jack Nicholson (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s NestThe Border) as his dim-witted sidekick trying to get their hands on the fortune of a hapless young heiress played by Stockard Channing (GreaseThe West Wing). A commercial failure on its initial release, this buoyant and beautifully staged madcap comedy is ripe for rediscovery and reappraisal.
