Why wasn't Lane Caudell a bigger star?
2 November 2006 | by (Merrimack Valley) – See all my reviews

Solid acting, well-written story propel "Goodbye Franklin High" past most of the teen-oriented movies of the '70s, not to mention the out-and-out exploitation flicks like "The Van" or the dopey (though still engaging) "Swim Team" and "Satan's Cheerleaders" (which drove a stake through Yvonne DeCarlo's already flagging career). The earnestness of this movie is the key to its charm, and the characters have a ring of authenticity: Like the majority of real teenagers, the characters in this movie work hard, go to school, party a little bit, hook up, struggle with their parents and face their futures with a mix of hope and trepidation. If I had to sum this movie up in one word, it would be "Genuine." Or perhaps "Charming." An interesting side note: "Franklin High's" star, the hunky yet likable Lane Caudell, sang and wrote the theme song for the underrated thriller "Sasquatch: The Legend of Bigfoot," though he doesn't appear in that film, to my knowledge.
