SCREENPLAY - JORDAN CRITTENDEN

Brian De Palma directing Tommy Smothers and Orson Welles? Sure, why not? This bonkers Warner Bros. production was De Palma’s first studio effort after making a name for himself as a leading light of a newly ascendant American independent film. De Palma had an infamously terrible time directing the film, souring him on studio filmmaking for many years, but Get to Know Your Rabbit is nevertheless singularly funny and fascinating, a satire of the counterculture about a disillusioned suit (Smothers, whose greatness is underappreciated today) who leaves his job as a market analyst to becoming a tap-dancing magician.
