The Penns were not able to earn much money, and they were able to film Alice's Restaurant in their backyard. UA found that the project was too American to gain foreign success so they allotted Penn and Elkins with a relatively small budget that was not likely to make anyone rich, that is unless the film became a hit. They did not see any returns for their efforts until August 20, 1969, when the motion picture was released. Although the Penns owned homes in both Stockbridge and Manhattan and had set aside money for the college education of their children, they still could not say that they wer well-to-do. Since they had yet to feel the profits from Bonnie and Clyde, it was decided that it would be foolish to pursue another long-term film project. However, Arthur Penn was still inclined to finish Little Big Man. This film carried a pro-Native American message.
