Arthur Bach is a very rich man- and very drunk most of the time, with a bar bill that reads like the national debt. He also stands to lose his $750-million dollar inheritance if he doesn't marry the most boring blonde on Long Island within a month. Unfortunately, Arthur's just discovered the girl of his dreams. And in his case, love's not only blind but blind drunk. Dudley Moore stars in Arthur, the bubbly box-office hit that solidified his standing as one of the most gifted comedians ever. Liza Minnelli is Linda Marolla, the actress/waitress who catches our hero's eye and heart. And in his Academy Award-winning performance as acerbic manservant Hobson, Sir John Gielgud steals the show. When Arthur intones his intention to bathe, Hobson dryly replies, "I'll alert the media." No alerts are necessary. Arthur, which picked up a second Oscar for its delightful title tune, has already become a contemporary comedy classic.
