“Martin Ritt, the director, and Walter Bernstein, the writer, have made a moving, haunted film…even in its comic moments, The Front works on the conscience.” —Vincent Canby, The New York Times

“A smart and funny film…it takes something that in no way should be funny and somehow manages to humanize and bring out the humor in it.” —Erik Beck, The Year in Film: 1976

“Director Martin Ritt manages to add a visual sense of encroachment…that enhances scriptor Walter Bernstein’s layers of irony into a cinematic one-two knockout.” —Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine

The Front (1976) stars Woody Allen in his first dramatic role as Howard Prince, a nebbishy cashier/part-time bookie who, during the McCarthy-era communist witch-hunt, does a favor for an old school friend, a blacklisted TV writer (Michael Murphy). As his pal’s “front”—representing the scribe’s work as his own and collecting ten percent of the profits—the apolitical schlemiel is soon enjoying not just the money but the perks, including the love of a sophisticated young producer (Andrea Marcovicci). But in an atmosphere of fear, nobody’s above suspicion, and Howard’s growing friendship with another unfairly accused blacklistee (Zero Mostel) brings down the wrath of HUAC—and a confrontation with his own burgeoning conscience.
