I have been wanting to see this hard to find flick since I had the chance to play the "Goldy" character in the stage play.
Although the film dates to '72 it really isn't even dated, although in one segment it does reference two out of operation airlines--sign of the times.
The cinematic version retains many of the features one would find in the stage play. I found the experience of watching "Butterflies are Free" so much more rewarding then many more countless modern pictures I've forked out 8 bucks for at the theater.
The character development is fantastic, Goldie Hahn is really classic as a
"reformed hippie" San Fran transplant.
However, I feel the supporting characters really shine with their nuanced
performances. The long camera angles and the sets really allow you to see the interaction between the actors and the talent shines. This film is entertaining and enjoyable without expensive special effects, graphic violence or vulgarity-- just a young Goldie in her cute panties and tiny, svelte figure.
