The organization's charismatic leader - the deputy - is scheduled to arrive in the town from the capital the day of the rally.

The rally does happen, after which a three-wheeled kamikaze runs over the deputy, who eventually passes away from his injuries. The official report is that the incident was a drunken accident.

THE LANDLORD

by Hal Ashby
 

kanalPresented by Joel Shames

Hal Ashby is a protégé of and editor for Norman Jewison (IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT). Jewison produced THE LANDLORD, Ashby's first film as director, starting a string of films (HAROLD AND MAUDE, THE LAST DETAIL, SHAMPOO, BOUND FOR GLORY, COMING HOME, BEING THERE) unmatched by any "70's maverick" filmmaker. THE LANDLORD shows all the signs of the quirky, idiosyncratic later films that so much reflect the zeitgeist of the 70's.

(1970) At the age of twenty-nine, Elgar Enders "runs away" from home. This running away consists of buying a building in a black ghetto in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn. Initially his intention is to evict the black tenants and convert it into a posh flat. But Elgar is not one to be bound by yesterday's urges, and soon he has other thoughts on his mind. He's grown fond of the black tenants and particularly of Fanny, the wife of a black radical; he's maybe fallen in love with Lanie, a mixed race girl; he's lost interest in redecorating his home. Joyce, his mother has not relinquished this interest and in one of the film's most hilarious sequences gives her Master Charge card to Marge, a black tenant and appoints her decorator.
