Cinematic Treasures Are Disappearing. That’s Where Missing Movies Comes In A consortium of film artists and professionals is working to save great films that have fallen into obscurity, one reel at a time. BY DONALD LIEBENSON JULY 11, 2022

The Heartbreak Kid, Elaine May’s classic anti-rom-com, turns 50 this year.

It is not available to stream. Your best bet is to find a now out-of-print VHS or DVD edition of the film—currently going for $57 and $170, respectively, on Amazon.
