The quirky 1971 comedy-drama Who is Harry Kellerman and Why is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?  explores midlife crisis through a rock-music composer’s perspective.

harrykellerman1_optDustin Hoffman (The Graduate) plays Georgie Soloway, a neurotic songwriter at the peak of his career who can’t seem to love anybody – least of all himself. He becomes increasingly depressed as his delusional paranoia is fueled by a mysterious stranger who has been bad-mouthing him. Even his therapist (Jack Warden, Used Cars) can’t seem to help as Georgie’s life and loves are revealed for all to analyze.

For his role as the prolific singer-songwriter, Hoffman performed live (in character) with Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show at the iconic rock palace, Fillmore East, in New York City. Dom DeLuise (History of the World: Part I) and Barbara Harris (was nominated for a 1972 Best Supporting Academy Award for her performance) co-star in this cult favorite directed by Ulu Grosbard (True Confessions) and written by Herb Gardner.
