Melvin Frank in The Prisoner of Second Avenue

The Prisoner of Second Avenue

1975 PG

Neil Simon's hit Broadway comedy makes a seamless transition to the big screen. Middle-aged New York City executive Mel has recently been "downsized" and doesn't know where to turn -- even though his sympathetic wife (Anne Bancroft) is just an arm's length away. The crazy ups and downs that follow keep the couple on their toes, if not on the edge of a nervous breakdown. Look fast for a young Sylvester Stallone as a man mistaken for a mugger.
