Storyline

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

Trivia

The Animals perform "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood". The song was originally written for Nina Simone. Her version is slower. Much later, a disco/flamenco version was released by Santa Esmerelda. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 08 mins) Right before the scene where the blonde gets upset at the painter and storms out, the camera is positioned in such a way that reveals there to be no ceiling in the ski chalet. See more »

hysterically dated
26 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best movie representation of dated and camp I could dream. Despite excelling at every aspect of dated material, it finds unexpected ways to amuse. It's obvious lesson on women's rights, and the absurd manner in which it tries to illustrate sexual equality, is an unexpected bonus. You may want to watch it more than once so you can catch smaller details. For example: the background on the ski mountain, and the fact that her lipstick is applied on top of the snow. If you only like 'quality movies' then don't even consider it. You must appreciate 60's pop music because there are a lot of hysterical band/dance scenes. If you like this sort of thing then I recommended it strongly.
