Description by OLDIES.com:

A mediocre stand-up comic with gambling debts runs away to the West Side of Chicago, and under an assumed name, takes a job as a janitor. Yearning to go back on the stage and win applause at all costs, he contacts his agent, who books him a gig to perform.

Product Description:

Often described as a French New Wave film made in Hollywood, Arthur Penn's 1965 art movie enters the unsettlingly paranoid world of a nightclub comic on the run from the Mob. Having fooled around with the wrong blonde and gambled himself into an unpayable debt, an entertainer (Warren Beatty) flees to Chicago, where he hides out and changes his name to Mickey One. He hooks up with Jenny (Alexandra Stewart) and Castle (Hurd Hatfield), the owner of the nightclub Xanadu, but he cannot shake the paralyzing conviction that he's being pursued no matter where he is. After being beaten by unknown assailants, Mickey finally decides that escape is impossible, so he might as well just do his thing.

Rating 4.0 Mickey One of its kind Movie Lover: from anonymous -- March, 6, 2011

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 credits is Donna Michelle, PMOY 1964. Get it now!
