The Landlord

Dir. Hal Ashby (1970). An indolent American princeling (Beau Bridges) purchases a dilapidated row house in a changing neighborhood, establishing a brief rapport with his hustling half-crazed tenants—and even learning something—before retreating back into his money. Directed by Hal Ashby from Bill Gunn’s script, The Landlord received mixed reviews, but it remains one of the funniest social comedies of its period; swanning through the slum, the good-natured embodiment of privilege, Bridges would never get a comparable role.
