Hadley's Rebellion was filmed almost totally at the Webb Schools of California in Claremont. The scene of the English class in which Hadley (Griffin O'Neal) falls asleep, was a real classroom featuring Webb Schools' music teacher, Chris Trussell as the teacher. See more »
This was a pretty good statement of teenage angst. A young and talented wrestler struggles with growing up and what's right. The teenage years are told through the medium of wrestling, a sport that is largely unrecognized and under-appreciated, according to this film. A few elements of the plot are typically hollywood (the washed up mentor who could have been a contender), but the performances are just strong enough to take you back to your own high school years and revisit all that was right, or wrong, with them.
