Writer-director Mazursky mined his own past for this warm comedy/drama set in the Village circa 1953, when it was a bohemian mecca for self-invention. Aspiring actor Lenny Baker arrives from Brooklyn, though mom Shelley Winters’ apron strings have a long reach even as he encounters a cast of characters including gay Antonio Fargas, ladies’ man Christopher Walken, potential love of his life Ellen Greene, and Smith as a manic-depressive painter.
