Storyline

This is an excellent movie beginning for a young man growing up in Mobile with freedom of sailing and girls his age. His naval father goes off to war and relocates him to New Mexico where he discovers the sensitive world of hispanics and their culture. He is befriended by a young lady his own age and gets crossways with a local bad boy. Very well done with plot and acting.

Stirs Up the Memories
8 February 1999 | by (Temple City, CA) – See all my reviews

It was 1971 when I first saw this movie at the Picfair theatre on Fairfax near Pico in Los Angeles. We each coughed up 49 cents to get in and few things in my life have given me more for the money. I think it was the magnificent New Mexico scenery that made the movie extraordinary in my mind

  • sort of like how a fresh, windswept day after a rain (a rare thing in


Southern California) can make even the dreariest of neighborhoods look alive and interesting. This, combined with the moving score, has kept this movie alive for me after all these years. With all the horrid things that appear on video, it truly bugs me that no one had the class to commit this one to tape!
