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 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.
