A NEW LEAF (Theatrical Release USA 1971)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

A New Leaf—good script, refreshing comedy—sports great acting via Walter Matthau and Elaine May. The supporting cast is excellent. The film has lost none of its ability to entertain despite its 1971 production and release date. It earns its place in the home video library for its classic comedy.
