"Harold and Maude" is an ageless love story that appeals to all ages, deftly directed by Hal Ashby. 

Twenty-something Harold (Bud Cort) is obsessed with death; he drives a hearse, and his favorite pastime is staging his own fake suicides. While attending a funeral (of a total stranger), he meets Maude (Ruth Gordon), a septuagenarian devoted to making the most of her time on Earth. As his mother strives to find Harold a proper wife, the mismatched couple falls in love. Maude teaches Harold how to live, until ... let's just say, you'll laugh, you'll cry, and you’ll hum along to the catchy Cat Stevens soundtrack.
