The program included films selected by Grazer and Howard -- BLAZING SADDLES (1974, d. Mel Brooks), SCARFACE (1983, d. Brian de Palma), ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST (1975, d. Miloš Forman), BONNIE AND CLYDE (1967, d. Arthur Penn), and THE GRADUATE (1967, d. Mike Nichols) -- and explored the impact the films have had on these celebrated filmmakers.
