The Oscar-nominated classic Canadian film “The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz” is headed for the Cannes film festival.
Director Ted Kotcheff’s digitally remastered 1974 film has been chosen for the festival’s Cannes Classics section.
Mordechai Richler was nominated for an Oscar for co-writing the screenplay version of his novel about a hustler seeking fame and fortune in 1940’s Montreal.
Richard Dreyfuss played the title character.
The film won the 1974 Golden Bear Award at the Berlin International Film Festival and Kotcheff says the remastered version “is better than the original print.”
