Cold Turkey

This is a great film, though changing social mores make it a bit of period piece.

If they remade it, they'd have to swap cigarettes for Blackberries and iPads.

yes, it is

I remember seeing it as a teenager in the 1970s, and I saw it again recently on a television station that plays old movies

the scene near the end, where the chain smoking doctor, Barnard Hughes, goes incoherent at the council meeting trying to explain why some of the money should go towards the construction of a new hospital, is priceless

also, a great score by Randy Newman
