Over the next fourteen years Anderson and McDowell brought back Mick Travis two more times, in O Lucky Man! (1973) and Britannia Hospital (1982). The resulting Mick Travis trilogy is rarely projected in New York City, but this month you have a chance at seeing all three in order as part of the Lindsay Anderson tribute at the Walter Reade Theater. As you can see, the key is catching O Lucky Man! on Saturday night.
Fri Aug 15 9:00pm If....The salute to Anderson also includes screenings of McDowell's stage tribute to the director, Never Apologize, with appearances by McDowell and producer-director Mike Kaplan at the following screenings:
