Beloved for her role as the fussy Shirley Feeney (companion to the rough-edged Laverne DeFazio) on the popular shows Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley, Williams also starred in films as Ron Howard's girlfriend in American Graffiti (1973) and as a highly unlikely murderess in The Conversation (1974), as well as co-producing the two Father of the Bride movies of the 1990s
Directed by Savage Steve Holland
Cartoonist Savage Steve Holland made his directorial debut with this acid comedy about a going-nowhere hamburger flipper and his run of bad luck. Its gleefully twisted tone, exemplified by a goofy suicide attempt, made it a minor quotable classic to a generation of young anti-authoritarian filmgoers. In one of his earliest roles, Cusack wears his expression of hangdog gloom with real comic sensibility, and the succession of miserable people and events that enter his life warrant every last frown and sigh.
