Getting Straight (1970) Poster

Trivia

Lane Community College in Eugene served as the location for the film. The new campus was in the final stages of construction at the time of production. This allowed the film crew to easily simulate the occupation of offices and buildings by protesters without interfering with actual campus life. Some pyrotechnic effects were used, including one that used black powder and petroleum that blackened an exterior wall and startled the cast and crew. A technician apologized for overdoing the effect (an understatement). Many local people were involved, including a few hand-picked for stunt work.
