Made in 1969, this comedy is about a Jewish gangster who discovers to his horror after being released from jail that the balance of power has shifted in his absence. Roemer decided not to release this wild comedy after extremely poor test screenings. But 20 years later, he submitted it to various festivals on a whim, and the film was immediately screened. Today, THE PLOT AGAINST HARRY ranks among the most beautiful films about New York. (hb)
