Director Richard Donner, who later hit pay-dirt with Superman (1978) in 1979, went on the talk show circuit to plug his blockbuster and was asked questions about his early directorial work. However, he couldn't remember the name of this movie. He ended up calling it "Dawn: Portrait of a Teenage Runaway", which was directed by Randal Kleiser. See more »
Sarah T. (1975) Linda Blair is in deep trouble again. This time she's a teenage lush who can't keep her nose out of the bottle. What's scary about this one is that she's eerily credible as a drunk. The cheese factor of Mark Hamill keeps this picture from earning any real credibility (one scene has Luke Skywalker crying like a woman, watch out Star Wars fans). Well, it was pretty funny watching ol' Skywalker pour on the water works. Other than that (sans Mark Hamill) it's a good film about young alcoholics.
