Brand New 2K Master! The great Jason Robards (The Day After) recreates his Broadway role as the iconoclastic Murray Burns in A Thousand Clowns. Murray is funny, feisty, compassionate and very determined to have nothing to do with the lemming-like rush-hour world. But his resolve is tested when social workers Sandra (Barbara Harris, The War Between Men and Women) and Albert (William Daniels, The Graduate) tell him that he must shape up… or his 12-year-old nephew Nick (Barry Gordon, Body Slam) will be shipped out to a foster home. Released when workday lifestyles went largely unchallenged, this inventive comedy-drama gleefully speaks to the nonconformist in us all. Martin Balsam (After the Fox), Gene Saks (The Prisoner of Second Avenue) and John McMartin (Sweet Charity) co-star in this classic film directed by Fred Coe (Me, Natalie) with a screenplay by Herb Gardner (Who Is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?) based on his own play. A Thousand Clowns won the 1966 Oscar for Actor in a Supporting Role (Balsam) and was nominated for three more Oscars: Picture (Coe), Adapted Screenplay (Gardner) and Score (Don Walker).
