4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Robert J. Schneider on March 31 2004
Format: VHS Tape
What can you do if you're a senior citizen, retired and living on a small fixed income, when the apartment building in which you've lived for the past 30 years or so is about to be demolished to make way for an upscale high-rise? What can you do if your best friend, who promised to take you in, then up & dies? What can you do if you are then taken in by your son and his family who pretend that they want you but, all the while, you know in your gut that you are an absolute burden to them? What can you do if your only true friend is yourself--and your cat? Would you have the courage to uproot yourself for the first time in your life and to discover new places, new experiences and yourself?
Such is the predicament of Harry Coombes (Art Carney, in his Oscar-winning performance), who sets out in search of a new, better life after the old, comfortable existence he always knew is unceremoniously cast by the wayside. In his quest across America, which takes him from New York City to Southern California, he occasionally hooks up with family members--his neurotic son Burt (Philip Bruns) and his dysfunctional family, cold-hearted daughter Shirley in Chicago (a well-cast Ellen Burstyn, who won her much-deserved Best Actress Oscar in the same year for Martin Scorsese's ALICE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE) and philandering son Eddie (an earnest Larry Hagman)--but it's his experiences with others such as hippy chick Ginger (Melanie Mayron), Native American healer Sam Two Feathers (an unforgettable Chief Dan George) and possible new love interest Celia (Sally Marr) that truly guide him to his destination; perhaps his destiny.
Also memorable is the earlier-mentioned dysfunctional family of eldest son Burt, consisting of wife Elaine (Dolly Jonah) and their two grown sons, the ingrate Burt Jr.

This is such a heartwarming love story. Its nice to watch something about love and kindness. You certainly don't need any sex, violence and phony special affects to keep you in your seat. Our children need more movies like this.

Harry reminded me of a good Canadian friend of mine who passed away a few years ago. His views to the world were often cynical but always clear and in point. Too bad many old Japanese I know are not like him.

This a wonderfully unusual and beautifully touching tale about an old man and his cat traveling across the United States. It will truly make you laugh and cry.

I purchased this movie after Art Carney passed away last year based on reviews I had read about it. It is one of the nicest movies I have ever seen. It makes you stop and think about how simple life really is ,if you just let it be.

This is not a comedy, by any stretch of the imagination, and Art Carney deserved his Oscar. There are some very funny moments but they are mainly bittersweet-this is a sad story. I saw it for the first time today and will be thinking about both Tonto and Harry for a long time. This is a movie that takes you in immediately, makes you care about its characters and relies on a great story to carry it through. If you have a heart this excellent film will touch you. It was much too short.

Format: VHS Tape
This movie came out in 1974, when I was 16 years old, but I don't recall ever hearing of it until I read about Art Carney's death a couple of weeks ago. I promptly ordered the video, watched the movie for the first time last night, and wow! it was so sad it ripped my heart out! It's a great movie, with an outstanding performance by Art Carney (yes, I do think he deserved the Oscar). The thing that most prompted me to get it was the fact that I love cats. If you love cats, I guarantee you'll love this movie, but I also guarantee you'll cry at the end. You'll also feel sorry for Carney's character, an old man who feels he's lost all his old friends and doesn't know his place in the world. He sets out with his cat Tonto trying to find roots, and along the way he meets some strange characters. That's one thing that makes the movie interesting. This movie also took me back to the 1970's and made me realize that life was actually simpler then, when we didn't have the Internet, cell phones, and computerized cars. Watching the movie will give you a feeling of nostalgia (if you can remember the 70's), as well as humor, sadness, and sympathy. A lot of emotions are wrapped up in this movie, and I couldn't believe how real it seemed to me.

Hearing the sad news that Art Carney passed away today, it immediately made me think of Harry and Tonto - even before any of his other excellent work. This is a movie (yes, it has comedic moments but is not a 'comedy') that provokes thought, evokes an era, and sticks with you even many years later. I urge anyone with a heart (and a few hankies) to see this. The reviewer who mentioned the R rating had it exactly right - a reasonable mature youngster sees and hears far more on television than what appears in this movie! Let's hope it appears on DVD before too long - I'm in line for a copy.
