Born 2 September 1929, Ashby was ultimately destroyed by the counterculture that fostered him. Starting with impressive editing work in the 1960s, he had a run of really interesting films in the 1970s:
Harold and Maude (1971)
(Suicide sure is funny in this film, as is the family priest’s “talk” with Harold about his relationship with a virtual octogenarian…)
The Last Detail (1973)
Bound for Glory (1976)
Coming Home (1978)
Being There (1979)
