War and Piece
1 June 2014 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Millionaires and palm trees line swanky Beverly Hills, California in May, 1969. When not protest-writing about the Vietnam War, curly-haired high school senior Steve Guttenberg (as David "Dave" Kessler) has one thing on his mind. He desperately needs to have (you guessed it) sex, but Mr. Guttenberg is unable to find a place to copulate. Yes, he has his own car and lives in the Los Angeles area. Guttenberg is also good-looking, muscular and athletic. He has access to all the intoxicants he could need, and lives in a specious mansion with parents who keep out of sight. And, Guttenberg attracts attention from blonde Lisa Reeves (as Margaret) and brunette Meridith Baer (as Tracy), who certainly must be among the two most arousing young women in school...

That Guttenberg can't find a partner and place for sexual activity is not entirely believable, but he is appealing in his first starring role. The story never seems as funny as writer Paul Diamond's original intentions, but there are some laughs. Funniest is nerdy but cute Gino Baffa (as Charlie), Guttenberg's more sexually active little brother. Director Francis Simon does well with his engaging cast at a graduation party. Veteran comedian Phil Silvers is always nice to see – herein, he's the manager of am unsanitary "Kentucky Fried Chicken"-styled eatery. Guttenberg claims he works there for gas money. Back in 1969, rich kids still worked at fast-food restaurants. The songs, led by "Every Day with You Girl" by Dennis Yost and the Classics IV, sound fresh.

****** The Chicken Chronicles (10/20/77) Francis Simon ~ Steve Guttenberg, Branscombe Richmond, Gino Baffa, Phil Silvers
