Liberal guilt, with a few good laughs, a lot of frantic activity, and the occasional backfire. Beau Bridges is pale and befuddled (appropriately) as a rich kid who acquires a slum building and decides to move in. This 1970 feature was the directorial debut of Hal Ashby (Harold and Maude, Shampoo, Coming Home, Being There), and for a first effort it isn't that bad. With Lee Grant, Diana Sands, and Pearl Bailey.
