The administrators of Wyndham Girl's College believe their institution is the model of traditional values, proper decorum and girl's deportment. There is however a thriving underground movement at the college of rock music. When the administrators learn just prior to the Christmas break that one of their students, Terry Taylor, is a renowned rock music songwriter using the pseudonym Joanie Harper whose songs contain seductively feminist lyrics, they have to decide how to deal with Terry, an otherwise academically bright student, and this possible scandal to the school. Meanwhile, many of the students head to Sun Valley for the Christmas break. Among those at the resort are the college's benefactor, Senator Hubert Morrison, who is conflicted between what he believes is Terry's immoral stance and courting the youth vote through their unofficial leader Terry, and Gary Underwood, Terry's publisher. Gary is trying to get Terry to do something she considers amoral and against her feminist ... Written by Huggo

Well what can I say? I saw this movie at the base theater in Keflavik, Iceland back in 1965-66. The cool thing about it was that at the time the "Beach" movies were the hot ones that the military loved to show on the bases. There were probably 10 of this type of film and we saw them all and loved them. When you see a movie on a military base there is a lot of shouting and hooting going on by everyone during the film. This made it fun just to be there. California was the magical place with lots of things going on. It played to the fantasy when you are living in the land of the midnight sun! I will have to see the movie again sometime because it's been 40 plus years since I have seen it. But I did enjoy it at the time and place!
