Harry & Walter Go to New York ★★ 1976 (PG)

At the turn of the century, two vaudeville performers are hired by a crooked British entrepreneur for a wild crime scheme. The cast and crew try their hardest, but it's not enough to save this boring comedy. The vaudeville team of Caan and Gould perhaps served as a model for Beatty and Hoffman in “Ishtar.” 111m/C VHS, DVD . James Caan, Elliott Gould, Michael Caine, Diane Keaton, Burt Young, Jack Gilford, Charles Durning, Lesley Ann Warren, Carol Kane; D: Mark Rydell; W: John Byrum; M: David Shire.
