The fame brought him the role in 'Blackboard Jungle' and movie 'I Love You, Alice B. Toklas "(1968), staged Averbekom about the misadventures of a Jewish lawyer in the environment of drug. Debuted scandalous comedy 'Bob, Carol, Ted and Alice' (1969), about two couples that fail to adapt to the latest fashion craze sharing wives. Failures 'Alex in Wonderland (1970) and' Lover Bloom '(1973) gave way to great success the film' Harry and Tonto "(prize Oscar Arta Carney), which manifested the love directed to the poor and eccentric characters.
. Autobiographical strip about the life of an actor in New York 50-ies 'Next Stop - Greenwich Village' (1975) had an average success
. In 1978, Mazursky staged his most successful film 70-ies 'unmarried woman', skilfully exploring the problem of loneliness, family and marriage. Jill Kleyberg brilliantly conveys mood swings of his emancipated heroine. Remake of Truffaut "Jules and Jim 'called' Phil and Willie 'went unnoticed, like freestyle filming' Storm '(1982) Shakespeare. 'The Tempest' with its quirky sense of humor and an unusual scenario clearly deserves more. Conflicting reviews led to a funny and sad at the same time strip 'Moscow on the Hudson' (1984) about a Russian musician, which has become defector.
. Sales hit 'Rogue Beverly Hills' (1986) was marked by sparkling humor and brilliant acting, but met with a cool criticism
. Proved to be weak and follow-up comedy: satire on Latin American dictators' Moon Over Parador "(1988), family comedy 'Scenes in the shop' (1990) and 'cucumber' (1993), a comedy about a failed-director. From the thought of complete degradation of his work has saved only tape 'enemies: a love story' (1989), film adaptation of the book by Nobel Laureate Singer. It shows a surprisingly authentic atmosphere of postwar New York City 40-ies, which unfolds against the backdrop of the love story of a Jewish intellectual, to three different women. Alas, this is not true of the chamber farce 'Faithful' (1995), in which the presence of stars does not become a guarantee of artistic success.
