Being Hal Ashby

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines Hal Ashby's second directorial assignment in Harold and Maude. It discusses Ashby's directorial style and the deterioration in his relationship with Joan Marshall. Though it is unclear when they filed for divorce, Ashby and Joan received a final judgment of dissolution of marriage on May 26, 1971. Ashby's second film, being so steeped in death, was booked by student film societies and repertory cinemas and gradually became a cult phenomenon.

Keywords:   Hal Ashby, Harold and Maude, film director, Joan Marshall, divorce, student film societies, repertory cinemas
