Harold and Maude (1971)

Bud Cort as "Harold Chasen"

Cult classic pairs Cort as a dead-pan disillusioned 20-year-old obsessed with suicide and a loveable Gordon as a fun-loving 80-year-old eccentric. They meet at a funeral, and develop a taboo romantic relationship, in which they explore the tired theme of the meaning of life with a fresh perspective.

British Academy of Film & Television Arts (1972) Nominated Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Roles
Golden Globe (1971) Nominated Best Performance By an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical
