A New Leaf (1971)
Playboy Henry Graham squanders his wealth and must seek out a new source to maintain his idle rich lifestyle. The easy alternative to work is to find a rich woman, marry her, and murder her. Klutzy, nerdy Henrietta Lowell is the ideal candidate. But in dealing with his klutzy, nerdy, trusting new wife, a botanist, and her ill-managed estate, Henry unwittingly begins to assume some sense of responsibility, not realizing this while planning to do away with Henrietta on one droll camping trip…

Delightfully wacky, oddball comedy. Elaine May’s deliciously inept, awkward, filthy rich botanist character is possibly one of her best roles ever. Walter Matthau is wonderful as a spoiled, superannuated rich kid.

I don’t think this film ever got much recognition, but in my estimation it’s right up there with some of the best off-beat films ever, like Harold & Maude, King of Hearts, etc.

Now that second-run movie theaters are a thing of the past, perhaps the definition of cult status will be harder to determine; but this film certainly deserves to be there.
