The Day of the Locust
follows the lives of several residents of the crumbling San Bardino Arms
apartments up in the hills at the edge of Hollywood. We meet the aspiring
actress Faye Greener (Karen Black) and her door-to-door salesman father, Harry
(Burgess Meredith); Homer Simpson – portrayed by a fantastically eerie Donald
Sutherland – an accountant who is in love with Faye, and Tod Hackett (William
Atherton), a fresh-faced graduate set designer. These vignettes of Hollywood
clichés in The Day of the Locust find
characters that are forever on the fringes, desperately clinging to the dream
of finding fame and riches in the bright lights; the distinction between reality
and fantasy kept in a state of perpetual distortion. Schlesinger’s film is a
truly epic and frenzied panorama of 1930s Hollywood.
