Brian De Palma’s first feature, made for $100,000 (“a respectable sum for this kind of independent production—Columbia Daily Spectator), is a breezily comic affair with an improvisatory feel, following a nervous bridegroom during a madcap wedding weekend. This clear forerunner to his breakthrough, Greetings, is filled with ragged humor and proved the director had quite an eye for talent: the film stars a young Robert DeNiro (spelled Denero in the credits!), Jill Clayburgh, and William Finley, a future member of De Palma’s stock company.
