Synopsis

Director John Schlesinger's adaptation of Nathanael West's scathing novel about life on the fringes of Hollywood in the late 1930s. William Atherton plays the young sketch artist who moves in with Burgess Meredith's old vaudevillian and finds himself distracted by the wannabe starlet next door (Karen Black). A revealing insight into the lurid private lives of Tinseltown movers and shakers. Donald Sutherland plays a meek accountant called - no kidding - Homer Simpson, and look out for a young Jackie Earle Haley, the boy who grew up to be Freddy Krueger!
