Nineteen-year-old Harold Chasen is obsessed with death. He fakes suicides to shock his self-obsessed mother, drives a hearse, and attends funerals of complete strangers. Seventy-nine-year-old Maude Chardin, on the other hand, adores life. She liberates trees from city sidewalks and transplants them to the forest, paints smiles on the faces of church statues, and "borrows" cars to remind their owners that life is fleeting—here today, gone tomorrow! A chance meeting between the two turns into a madcap, whirlwind romance, and Harold learns that life is worth living, and how to play the banjo. Harold and Maude started as Colin Higgins's master's thesis at UCLA Film School. He was working as a pool boy when Paramount purchased the script. The 1971 film, directed by Hal Ashby, bombed. But then this quirky, dark comedy began being shown on college campuses and at midnight-movie theaters, and it gained a loyal cult following. In 1997 it was selected for inclusion on the National Film Registry at the Library of Congress. This novelization was published shortly after the film's release, but has been out of print for more than 30 years. Even fans who have seen the movie dozens of times will find this companion valuable, as it gives fresh elements to watch for and answers many of the film's unresolved questions. Colin Higgins was a screenwriter, director, and producer of films that included Harold and Maude, Silver Streak, 9 to 5, and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. He died in 1988.

The original script was sold to a major Hollywood studio virtually overnight; the screenwriter was working as a pool boy and driver for the producer; the director was considered an "acid freak" by the studio heads; the star was a 74-year old actress who didn't know how to drive a car. The film flopped upon release and later became one of the great cult successes of all time. This is the fascinating, never before told story of the making of Harold and Maude, shot guerrilla-style in the San Francisco Bay Area by a crew of "New Hollywood" filmmakers in the winter of 1971.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 1,0, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Institut f. Filmwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Proseminar Filmanalyse, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Film "Harold and Maude" von Regisseur Hal Ashby (USA 1971), von den Kritikern anfänglich als geschmacklos degradiert, ist eine mit deutlichen Elementen von schwarzer Komödie und Satire durchzogene Tragikomödie, die neben "Easy Rider" zu dem Kultfilm der 68er-"Flower-Power"-Generation avancierte und bis heute seine Aussagekraft behalten hat. Harold Chasen (Bud Cort), 18, reich, ernst und introvertiert, leidet unter der Erziehung seiner materialistischen Mutter (Vivian Pickles), die sich nicht um seine wahren Bedürfnisse kümmert. Sarkastisch-schwermütig, pessimistisch, verunsichert und ziellos fasziniert ihn nur der Tod. Seine skurril morbiden Vorlieben ( - um Aufmerksamkeit zu erlangen inszeniert er angebliche Selbstmorde, woraufhin seine Mutter ihn zum Psychiater und zum Militär schickt, was alles erfolglos bleibt - ) führen dazu, dass er auf einer Beerdigung Maude (Ruth Gordon) kennenlernt. Diese, 79, arm, humorvoll und extrovertiert, ist durch ihre Lebenserfahrung gereift. Optimistisch, selbstsicher und zielstrebig versucht sie, Harold zu kreativ unbekümmertem Individualismus und zu neuer Lebensfreude zu ermuntern. Die Analyse setzt ein, als Harold Maude anlässlich ihres 80. Geburtstages in ihrem umgebauten Eisenbahnwagen überrascht. [...]

MAN BOOKER PRIZE FINALIST A New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR, Financial Times, Southern Living, The Guardian, and Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year Long-listed for the Gordon Burn Prize Autumn. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. That's what it felt like for Keats in 1819. How about Autumn 2016? Daniel is a century old. Elisabeth, born in 1984, has her eye on the future. The United Kingdom is in pieces, divided by a historic, once-in-a-generation summer. Love is won, love is lost. Hope is hand-in-hand with hopelessness. The seasons roll round, as ever. Ali Smith's new novel is a meditation on a world growing ever more bordered and exclusive, on what richness and worth are, on what harvest means. It is the first installment of her Seasonal quartet—four stand-alone books, separate yet interconnected and cyclical (as the seasons are)—and it casts an eye over our own time. Who are we? What are we made of? Shakespearean jeu d’esprit, Keatsian melancholy, the sheer bright energy of 1960s pop art: the centuries cast their eyes over our own history making. Here’s where we’re living. Here’s time at its most contemporaneous and its most cyclic. From the imagination of the peerless Ali Smith comes a shape-shifting series, wide-ranging in time-scale and light-footed through histories, a story about aging and time and love and stories themselves.
