typical fare for the post Vietnam era....
12 September 2006 | by (spokane,wa) – See all my reviews

i just happened to catch this today (09/06) and found it mildly amusing, typical fare for the post Vietnam era..,not to mention it was produced by playboy productions aka Hugh hef. the best part is the conversation with the doc and the word association bit, other than that i knew i recognized Barbara seagull aka Barbara Hershey but couldn't think of her name (boy she was a hottie back then) anyway i digress,, so if your bored and have nothing better to do and remember the 60's and 70's fondly like i do (and had friends who had hair down to their butts both guys and girls and wore American flags as capes) you just might enjoy it rick f
