I Ought to Be in Pictures is a 1982 family comedy starring Walter Matthau ("The Odd Couple") and Ann-Margret ("Carnal Knowledge") from playwright Neil Simon's Broadway hit. Nineteen-year old Libby Tucker (Dinah Manoff) wants to be a movie star, so she decides to leave Brooklyn and land on the doorstep of her estranged father, Herbert (Walter Matthau). Hollywood screenwriter Herbert has not seen his daughter in 16 years, not since he deserted his family. Upon arrival, Libby meets Steffy Blondell (Ann-Margret), Herbert's long-suffering girlfriend, who works as a hairdresser to the stars. Soon, Libby has plenty of advice for Herbert on his parental responsibilities, which include getting her an acting job. Herbert, who has been struggling with writer's block, tries to warn Libby about staying away from the film industry, so she tries to create her own opportunities by meeting some of the other aspiring actors in town. Herbert Ross ("Steel Magnolias") directs this charming and witty comedy about family and fame.moreless
