Storyline

Wealthy twenty-two year old Max Frost - born Max Jacob Flatow, Jr. - is a rock music superstar, he a rock music franchise unto himself. He has cut ties with his parents, especially due to the control wielded by his overbearing mother, Daphne Flatow, that control against which he rebelled and is still rebelling in the form of having an entourage solely of young people, who he believes knows better than people even a few years older than them. Age-wise, the senior member of his entourage is his acid-dropping girlfriend, former child star Sally LeRoy, age twenty-four, the junior member being fifteen year old Yale law graduate Billy Cage, his business advisor and his band's guitarist. Max decides to endorse thirty-seven year old Congressman Johnny Fergus, running on the Democratic ticket for a California senate seat, as one of Johnny's platform policies is to lower the voting age to eighteen. Johnny happily accepts that endorsement because of Max's power over young people, whose votes ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Max Frost (Christopher Jones) asks Billy Cage (Kevin Coughlin) how long he thinks he is going to live and he replies "30, man." Coughlin was later killed in a hit-and-run accident on January 19, 1976, only five weeks after his 30th birthday. See more »

Goofs

The script makes an important point about Billy Cage (Kevin Coughlin) being 15 years old, but in reality, he was 22, and would turn 23 the year the film was released. Sally Le Roy (Diane Varsi), whose specific age is never mentioned in the script, had, ironically, already past the forbidden age of 30, which Max Frost (Christopher Jones) was also dangerously approaching.

Quotes

Mrs. Daphne Flatow: [hysterically, as she is arrested for being "overage"] No, no, no, I'm young! I'm young! I'm VERY young! I'm VERY YOUNG!
The Hook, Abraham: [unimpressed, taking her into custody] Lady... you are the biggest "mother" of them all.

This Film is A Time Warp Back to the 1960's.
10 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a time warp of Los Angeles and the Sunset Strip in the 1960's. At first sigthing on the FLIX Channel I thought the actor was James Dean. Uncanny resemblance.

Richard Pryor as the drummer in a rock band getting high on LSD with topless white chicks must of been mind blowing for teenagers then. I missed this film totally in 1968. My parents probably made sure of it.

To see Daily Variety columnist Army Archerd, and the greatest lawyer in the nation at that time, Melvin Belli, playing themselves in a film with a whacked out Shelly Winters was just amazing.

The real night time Sunset Strip cruising footage of 1968 was really "far-out man".
