In “Down and Out in Beverly Hills”, street bum Nick Nolte is saved from drowning and taken in by a well-to-do but dysfunctional couple (Richard Dreyfuss and Bette Midler). Nick, in turn, saves them from themselves. Flamboyant rocker Little Richard plays a delightful cameo as an irritable neighbor. Paul Mazursky (“An Unmarried Woman”, ‘Moscow on Hudson”) directed with a deft touch.
