Warren Beatty and Hal Ashby team up for a bed‐hopping farce that doubles as a sly political satire Shampoo gives us a day in the life of George, a Beverly Hills hairdresser and lothario who runs around town on the eve of the 1968 presidential election trying to make heads or tails of his financial and romantic entanglements. His attempts to scrape together the money to open his own salon are continually side‐tracked by the distractions presented by his lovers — played brilliantly by GOLDIE HAWN (The Sugarland Express), JULIE CHRISTIE (Don’t Look Now), and LEE GRANT (in an Oscar‐winning performance). Star WARREN BEATTY (Bonnie and Clyde) dreamed up the project, co‐wrote the script with ROBERT TOWNE (Chinatown), and enlisted HAL ASHBY (Harold and Maude) as director, and the resulting carousel of doomed relationships is an essential seventies farce, a sharp look back at the sexual politics and self‐absorption of the preceding decade.

Good DVD

As usual a film I have not watched in years. I now remember how good this film was and am glad I now have it in my collection.

Ashby’s poignant farce is a winner

Shampoo charts a day in the life of Warren Beatty’s smooth talking ladies man, as he tries to secure financing for his own salon and sleeps around with his clientele. A deceptively intelligent film that can be enjoyed both as a broad farce and as a more nuanced satire of the well intentioned idealism of American counter-culture clashing with capitalist aspirations and triggering it’s own downfall. Beatty has rarely been better than he is here, nailing the mix of charm and sleaze, and he is aided hugely by Christie, Hawn and Grant in excellent supporting roles.
