California Suite

1978

Herbert Ross
Director

Neil Simon's take on a varied group of well-heeled visitors to a California hotel. Maggie Smith is on superb form as an insecure Oscar nominated actress (Maggie really did win an Oscar for the role). At the other end of the scale the segment with Bill Cosby and Richard Pryor wastes both of them.
