Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills
Directed by Paul Bartel
From cult filmmaker Paul Bartel, the director of Private Parts, Death Race 2000, Cannonball, Eating Raoul, Not for Publication and Lust in the Dust, comes this hilarious comedy starring Jacqueline Bisset (The Mephisto Waltz), Ray Sharkey (The Idolmaker), Mary Woronov (Night of the Comet), Robert Beltran (Lone Wolf McQuade), Ed Begley Jr. (Transylvania 6-5000), Wallace Shawn (The Princess Bride), Arnetia Walker (TV’s Nurses), Paul Bartel (The Pope Must Diet), Paul Mazursky (A Man, a Woman and a Bank), Rebecca Schaeffer (TV’s My Sister Sam), Barret Oliver (D.A.R.Y.L.), Susan Saiger (Get Crazy) and music legend Michael Feinstein. What happens when two neurotic, comically complicated Beverly Hills families share one mansion for a single weekend? Newly-widowed sitcom queen Clare (Bisset) and her best friend, freshly divorced socialite Lisabeth (Woronov), are about to have the times and temptations of their lives. In the servants’ quarters, Clare’s houseboy (Beltran) and Lisabeth’s servant (Sharkey) have a bet: whichever man seduces the other’s rich, single and tantalizing employer first is the winner. No rules restrain the delicious fun in Bartel’s riotous romp where it’s just another weekend of shameless sexual adventures, ill-fated romances and an accidental death.
