Trivia

Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent were asked to write the theme song. However it was dropped in favour of Rod McKuen's music, but went on to be a major UK hit for Scott Walker See more »

Crazy Credits

Panavision is the first thing to be credited. The production seal follows. Then, "This film is entirely fictional..." appears on the screen. Director Michael Sarne is then credited, followed by the rest of the crew members. The actors are not credited. The title of the film appears last and blinks on and off in neon, soft-focus letters.

This film was a defining moment in my life
12 February 2002 | by (Valle Crucis, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

I remember this film as one which helped to define my life in college in the late 60's. I must have seen it along with my friends 10 times. We had the songs memorized and would sing them everywhere. I can't really understand the negative comments about this film. I would really like to find a copy out there somewhere so I could see it again. Does anyone have a copy?
