Lookin' to Get Out
Alex has had a good day at the track, a bad night at the poker game and he’ll have a worse time if the guys he owes catch up with him. So Alex and go-along pal Jerry split for Las Vegas where, they hope, Lady Luck and their wits will give them the cash they need.
Fans of life-embracing buddy comedy and of Hal Ashby (Harold And Maude, Being There) are in luck with this newly discovered version of Ashby’s Lookin’ To Get Out,” with 15 minutes of never-before-seen footage.
Jon Voight, directed by Ashby in his Academy Award-winning* role in Coming Home, plays mercurial Alex and co-wrote this con-is-on tale, co-starring Ann-Margret and Burt Young and featuring a very young Angelina Jolie in her very first film.
