    The pinnacle of Art Carney's later career. We have the story of man forced onto the street with only a beloved cat as companion. Naturally the humanity of the character is brought forth with the change in his circumstances and Carney's interactions with those he meets are memorable.

    Interesting movie.. Not really sure what the whole plot was, had some funny moments good acting but it left me wanting more. There wasn't a climax or down point it just seemed to flow uneasily. was interesting to see 1970's usa.. Movie is Not worth watching though.

    "Harry and Tonto" is a touching film about old age that would be incomplete without the heartwarming performance of Art Carney, who makes every scene and line of dialogue seem completely genuine. The direction and writing on Paul Mazursky's behalf is noteworthy as well, but the real reason for watching "Harry and Tonto" is because of Carney's performance.
