The great writer-director Paul Mazursky’s (Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice) 1976 memory piece, Next Stop, Greenwich Village, weaves the poignant yet often funny tale of his own youth as a nascent actor in early 1950s New York.

It’s a long way from Brooklyn to the Village for Mazursky surrogate Larry (Lenny Baker), who – even as he meets and hangs with a sparkling array of new friends (incarnated gorgeously by the likes of Ellen Greene, Lois Smith (Roadie), Christopher Walken (Seven Psychopaths), and (in a tiny début film role) Bill Murray – remains haunted by his larger-than-life, echt-Jewish mother (Shelley Winters, The Night of the Hunter).

Special features on the Blu-ray edition of the R-rated comedy-drama include the following:

-Isolated Music Track
-Audio Commentary with writer/director Paul Mazursky and actress Ellen Greene
-Original Theatrical Trailer
