Directed By:  Jonathan Demme
Composed By:  Bruce Langhorne

“Lyrical…an almost flawless act of sympathetic imagination… Jonathan Demme shows perhaps a finer understanding of lower-middle-class life than any other American director.”
– Pauline Kael, The New Yorker

“A beautifully observed, beautifully performed offbeat comedy…the film’s delightful humor derives from the characters, who are affectionately observed but never patronized.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out Film Guide

Directed by Jonathan Demme from a screenplay by Bo Goldman – two of the great filmmakers of the 1970s and 80s – Melvin and Howard (1980) tells the mostly true story of milkman Melvin Dummar (Paul Le Mat), who picks up a cranky, injured desert rat, gives him a ride, and discovers years later that the man may have been Howard Hughes (Jason Robards), who apparently has left Melvin millions in a disputed will. A shiningly affectionate look at striving, dreamy American life, also starring Mary Steenburgen and Pamela Reed.
