Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Original Theatrical Date: December 9, 1974
  • Best Actress - Ellen Burstyn

Ellen Burstyn won the "Best Actress" Oscar for her performance in this memorable comedy-drama about a widowed mother suddenly forced to take charge of her own life.

Director Martin Scorcese guides a wonderful cast including the very young future Academy Award-winner Jodie Foster, singer-actor Kris Kristofferson, Harvey Keitel and Oscar-nominee Diane Ladd.

In the early portions of the film, Alice works as a waitress at a diner owned by "Mel" (Vic Tayback), and these scenes served as the springboard for the popular Seventies' TV sit-com, Alice.
