Good films.

(Though as much as I love Art Carney, and no argument from me he was great in HARRY AND TONTO, I am not so sure he deserved to win the Best Actor oscar that year over Al Pacino in THE GODFATHER PART II or Jack Nicholson in CHINATOWN).

Though it's been awhile since I've seen HARRY AND TONTO. Maybe I'll change my mind this viewing.

I think it's good when an older character actor wins for a "quiet" sort of movie. So I have no problem with Carney receiving the Oscar.

I agree, and I also agree that Al Pacino and Jack Nicholson were just as deserving.

I love the ensemble cast in this film. Everyone seems quirky. So many of them are drifters, yet they persevere without hesitation. Carney's character takes everything in stride, and never judges them. It's also important to remember that this was a day and age when animals were banned from just about everywhere but an owned house, so his refusal to give up his beloved cat is not only sincere but brave, and he portrays that exceptionally, I think.

You're right that "rules" (laws?) about animals, especially service animals, have changed.
