Bernice Bobs Her Hair (1977)

Only available in Canada, United States

It's the hot summer of 1919. Visiting her cousin Marjorie (Veronica Cartwright), sweet-but-dull Bernice (Shelley Duvall) is transformed into a smooth-talking man-trap by her vampish kin. However, the “make-over” works too well, Bernice becomes the belle of the ball, captivating every boy's interest – even Marjorie's boyfriend Warren (Bud Cort).

The now worldly Bernice has the last laugh – a clever and ironic twist. One of the best screen translations of F. Scott Fitzgerald's literary work, Bernice also includes the delightful supporting role performances of Dennis Christopher (Breaking Away) and Polly Holliday (Alice). Introduced by Henry Fonda.

This production is part of the American Short Story Collection .

Playful and adorable coming of age story by F. Scott Fitzgerald set in the 1920's. Surprise ending.
