Dream double bill # 3 'Harold and Maude' and 'Rushmore'

It occurred to me that there were some similarities between 'Harold and Maude' and 'Rushmore' ; Max and Harold both have relationships with older women and both have over active imaginations.
Oh, and both films have Cat Stevens on their respective soundtracks.

I think this would make an excellent double bill, forget putting 2 Wes Anderson films together, this is his best film. I personally believe that both 'The Royal Tenenbaums' and 'The Life Acquatic with Steve Zissou' have been no where near as good as 'Rushmore'.

Just watched Rushmore on tv and kept thinking, this film is so similar to Harold and Maude in tone and quirky character types, right down to the deadpan delivery and Cat Stevens song.
