Shampoo is a racy, star-studded bedroom farce set in the decadent, sexually liberated Los Angeles of the late 1960s.
“_Maybe it means I don’t love them. Maybe it means I don’t love you, I don’t know. No one’s going to tell me that I don’t like them._”
Drawing from Warren Beatty’s own image, as well as hair dresser-turned-producer Jon Peters and Manson murder victim Jay Sebring, SHAMPOO follows George Roundy, on the eve of Nixon’s re-election, as he mixes business with pleasure with his new squeeze (Goldie Hawn), his ex-girlfriend (Julie Christie), her Republican sugar daddy (Jack Warden).
Hal Ashby’s feature captures the waning days of ‘60s Los Angeles with comic grace, and a little dash of himbo magic that only Beatty could deliver.
