Arthur (17-Jul-1981)

Director: Steve Gordon

Writer: Steve Gordon

Music by: Burt Bacharach

Producer: Robert Greenhut

Keywords: Comedy, Romance, Alcoholism, New York, Inheritance

Drunken wastrel Arthur Bach will not receive his $750M inheritance unless he marries society heiress Susan Johnson; his engagement is suddenly less certain after he meets waitress and kindred spirit Linda Marolla as she tries to steal a tie from Bergdorf Goodman's. Gielgud as Arthur's disdainful butler Hobson nearly steals the film. Won Oscars for Best Supporting Actor, Best Original Song; received additional nominations for Best Actor and Best Screenplay.
