Move is a 1970 comedy film starring Elliott Gould, Paula Prentiss and Geneviève Waïte, and directed by Stuart Rosenberg. The screenplay was written by Joel Lieber and Stanley Hart, adapted from a novel by Lieber.[2]


The film covers three days in the life of Hiram Jaffe (Gould), a would-be playwright who supplements his living as a porn writer and by walking dogs. He and his wife, Dolly (Paula Prentiss), are moving to a new apartment on New York's Upper West Side. Jaffe is beset by problems, including his inability to persuade the moving man to move the couple's furniture, and retreats into fantasy.
