Thin script from Julian Haley's novel about a college senior who struggles to stay with the curriculum after falling in love with an attractive co-ed. Peter Fonda, pre-"Easy Rider", amusingly enters the film on a motorbike, but never manages to find an appropriate acting style and seems distinctly miscast; either he's smiling too much or talking too slowly, his heavy-lidded eyes fixated on the ground. It's a bad match between actor and material, however Nick Adams is very enjoyable as a goof-off who gets drafted. Sharon Hugueny is a rather bland beauty, and all the adult characters are stereotypically rigid and humorless, but the film's cinematography (by Joe Biroc and Ellsworth Fredericks) is beautifully expressive. Overall, a fairly rote youth flick, but one with a curiously downbeat, foreboding tone. ** from ****
