Editorial Reviews

Considered ahead of its time - and perhaps it still is - this unusual drama, inspired by the French New Wave, brought Warren Beatty and producer-director Arthur Penn together for the first time - two years before their landmark Bonnie and Clyde. Beatty stars as a Detroit night club comic who incurs the wrath of The Mob (he doesn't know why) and flees to Chicago to start life anew - but still living in fear. But the plot is secondary to the look and sound of this film (a favorite of Martin Scorsese), which boasts a score by Eddie Sauter and stunning photography by Academy Award(r)-winner Ghislain Cloquet (1980, Best Cinematography, Tess). Alexandra Stewart, Hurd Hatfield, Franchot Tone and Jeff Corey co-star in this one-of-a-kind motion picture. Incidentally, much of it was shot in what is now Oprah Winfrey's studio. Newly remastered.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

4.0 out of 5 stars DVD Details / Mickey One of its kind February 9, 2011
Format:DVD
DVD on demand coming from Columbia Classics (DVD-R)

Unavailable for many years, this early Arthur Penn-picture has now been released to DVD.
Believed by some critics to be one rare example of American nouvelle vague (e.g. Ethan Mordden in "Medium Cool" - recommended 60s cinema reading) it vaguely foreshadows "New Hollywood" auteurism - soon to arrive with "Bonnie and Clyde", another Penn/Beatty collaboration two years later.
Original score (available on CD) composed by Eddie Sauter; saxophone improvisations by Stan Getz.
Cast includes Warren Beatty, Alexandra Stewart, Hurd Hatfield, Franchot Tone ...and yes, "The Girl" struggling with the windshield wipers under the opening titles is Donna Michelle, Playmate of the Year 1964.
Get it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Once considered daring, now an interesting timepiece March 16, 2011
Format:DVD
"Mickey One" is the 1965 Arthur Penn-Warren Beatty collaboration of French new wave filmmaking brought to Chicago. While it doesn't exactly merge the big shoulders of America's second city with Jules and Jim and maybe more reflects the neo-realism of Italy's The Bicycle Thief, the new DVD gives an impression of avant-garde American filmmaking from the era. I first saw this when taking a film appreciation course at Michigan State University in 1972. I wasn't much of a film buff in those days and this movie seemed incoherent and off the wall to me. Almost no one with exposure to modern film would have such a reaction today, although a few might be confused by what goes on.

The plot -- what there is of one -- involves Beatty (he's called Mickey because he steals a Social Security card from a drunken Pole name Miczevsksi and his next employer can't pronounce the name) playing a nightclub comic on the lam from mobsters and hiding out in Chitown looking for a way to re-emerge without being put on ice. This storyline includes Beatty's romance with Alexandra Stewart (Zeppelin, Blood Money), interactions with Hurd Hatfield (The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Boston Strangler), who plays a nightclub impressario that wants to try out Beatty's act, and various other interactions on his trip to nowhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars No serious film buff should go w/o seeing this..... October 5, 2011
By WoodyWW
Format:DVD
If you're a fan of early 1960's British, American, French, Italian, Swedish, Polish, etc. films, the "art", or "serious" films, esp. those in B&W, you need to know this film. Are you a fan of "This Sporting Life"? "Saturday night & Sunday Morning"? "Knife in the Water"? "L'Eclisse"? This great Arthur Penn movie is along those lines. (Notice the others I named are all British or European).

When I was a freshman in college, taking an "Intro to Film History" course, this was one of the classic films we were shown. I never forgot "Mickey One", or Bergman's "Wild Strawberries", or "Nanook of the North", or Buster Keaton's "The Great Train Robbery". That's how good this film is; it belongs in the company of the best Bergman films.

And while you're at it, check out the musical score by Gus Sauter. It's one of those quintessential early 1960's jazz (or "jazz-y") film scores. And if you want to see another great Penn film, check out "The Missouri Breaks".
