It won four Oscars at the 1975 Academy Awards and is considered by many to be among the top 100 films Hollywood has made so far. (Consider that Hollywood makes about 500 pictures per year that´s saying alot.) The website Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 97% rating. This film is dated but a classic for a very good reason. It´s a great film.
