I just saw this film and I can't remember when but it had to have been in 1979 or 1980 of what I do remember, barely, is the ending. It was a shock though to see this completely and I don't quite understand why Robbie Benson was cast in this role but then again Hollywood is idiotic and should be recognized for what it usually does which is not helping matters any, especially on the cultural and social tip. Not saying anything against American actor Robbie Benson but this is just dumb. So, if I were to accept the idea that the actor's role is to try to assume the part of the character that he or she is trying to portray from males assuming female roles and vice versa to attempts in portraying other ethnicities, persons of different eras, ages, epochs and so on and so on etc. ad infinitum. To me, it smells like deceit and patronizing. Again, nothing against the talented actors and actresses in the film but straight to the writers and producers who are the idiots. I'm relieved that it failed but I'm also glad that this is around to show people the dumb stuff that Hollywood people were generating.
