Plot Summary

Simon is a student at a college in San Francisco. He is content to be on the rowing team and remain as just a casual observer to the on-campus unrest, demonstrations and protests. However, curiosity gets the best of him and he begins exploring the inner sanctum of the students who have invaded the dean's office. He soon meets Linda and becomes a loyal member of the student revolution to meet girls. However, when he truly discovers the corruption and the madness that his comrades are protesting, his mindset also joins the movement. He becomes a revolutionary leader and prepares his comrades for a very violent climactic showdown with "the pigs" at a sit-in. Written by thustlebird

Edit
Trivia Originally the film was to be shot on Columbia University's campus. However, Columbia withdrew their offer and the crew moved to Berkeley instead. The book had not gained notoriety yet and Berkeley was more or less in the dark about the content of the film and what events the director would be staging on the campus. This explains the tongue-in-cheek statement that appears before the opening credits thanking an "anonymous locale" and noting "other cities refused to cooperate". See more »
Goofs Coxswains don't say "stroke". The stroke of the boat (the rower in front of the coxswain) is responsible for maintaining the stroke rate. See more »

Crazy Credits The following written statement appears on screen before the opening credits sequence: "The producers of this film gratefully acknowledge the cooperation of the people of San Francisco and another anonymous locale for participating in the production of this motion picture. Other cities refused to cooperate--perhaps feeling that strawberries are irrelevant." See more »
Quotes Elliot - Coxswain: [describing a large breasted woman who looks for Simon] Do you remember that... National Geographic you have in your back room?
Simon: [laughs] Yeah.
Elliot - Coxswain: Yeah, well this one is a white version of page 43.
