Bye Bye Braverman


Dir. Sidney Lumet. 1968, 94 mins. Digital projection. With George Segal, Jack Warden, Jessica Walter, Godfrey Cambridge, Phyllis Newman. The quintessential Fun City director, Sidney Lumet drew on his Yiddish theater roots for this dark, extremely ethnic comedy adapted from Brooklyn novelist Wallace Markfield’s wise-guy satire of pop-culture obsessed Partisan Review intellectuals, To An Early Grave. Careening through Brooklyn in search of a funeral, the cast includes sometime stand-up comedians Alan King and Godfrey Cambridge.
