Did You Know?


Real-life actor siblings Joyce Van Patten and Dick Van Patten were romantically paired in the script (even though they were unrelated within confines of plot), one of few (if only) times a brother/sister acting duo were ever cast as onscreen paramours. One scene even shows them briefly necking. See more »

Jr. High Favorite

I recall seeing this movie when I was in the 9th grade when my best buddy and I went to a free showing. I liked the movie and actually went back and paid to see it a second time because I was fascinated by the character played by Kristoffer Tabori. I saw the movie again a few years later, in the late 70's, when it showed up at my college campus theater. The movie has it's comic moments, as well as some serious moments. In some ways the story was a bit ahead of it's time and is quite enjoyable to watch. I have been trying to find information regarding this movie for along time and finally tracked it down by coming across the actors name (Kristoffer Tabori). Does anyone know if it is available on VHS or DVD?
