Just saw Harry and Tonto (1974) for the first time yesterday (on Fox Movie Channel). Just completely blown away. This is an absolute 10/10. I never saw Art Carney on screen anywhere other than The Honeymooners (my understanding is that he was primarily a stage actor) before I saw him in this film, and I was absolutely amazed that the goofy "Ed Norton" could deliver such a wonderful performance. That's what makes a great actor:having the ability to step into any role. Carney received a very well-deserved Best Actor Oscar for his performance, beating Al Pacino (Godfather Part II); Jack Nicholson (Chinatown); Dustin Hoffman (Lenny); and Albert Finney (Murder on the Orient Express)

amazing the way art Carney worked.  a total original.
an Odyssey w/ a cat across early seventy's America really captured that early seventy's film making vibe
making new friends and saying goodbye to old friends
