Cold Turkey ★★★ 1971 (PG)

Often witty satire about what happens when an entire town tries to stop smoking for a contest. Van Dyke is fine as the antismoking minister; newscasters Bob and Ray are riotous; oldtimer Horton's swansong. Wholesome, somewhat tame fare. 99m/C VHS . Dick Van Dyke, Pippa Scott, Tom Poston, Bob Newhart, Vincent Gardenia, Barnard Hughes, Jean Stapleton, Graham Jarvis, Edward Everett Horton; D: Norman Lear; W: Norman Lear; M: Randy Newman.
