| like an ep of Seinfeld
SO much talking, in this guys-on-a-journey film. This was a couple years after George Segal had been nominated for Virginia Woolf. Jack Warden had done a lot of TV AND films, but his two nominations will come ten years later. Their friend has died, and they are on the way to the funeral. Sorrell Booke is in here (Boss Hogg, on Dukes of Hazard !) Rounding out the cast is Joseph Wiseman.. the only thing I know about him is that he was the very first James Bond villain in "Dr. No". a LONG conversation with a taxi driver when they get into a minor cruncher, and the taxi driver (also) turns out to be jewish. Godfrey Cambridge WAS set to film a tv series with Don Adams years later, but they did not get along. More on that in Cambridge's bio here on imdb. Died quite young, while filming the part of Idi Amin. Lots of flashbacks by Morroe Rieff (Segal).. pretty corny, but someone somewhere thought they were interesting. It's okay. Similar to the "thinker" films of the 1970s. A couple minor surprises. could put it in with Much ado about Nothing. or maybe an episode of Seinfeld.

Directed by Sydney Lumet ( FIVE nominations, not for this one.) had worked with J. Warden on Twelve Angry Men. Written by Wallace Markfield...had written several novels, but this seems to be the only one made into film.
