Nifty retrospective documentary
9 April 2014 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

This forty-four minute documentary offers an interesting and informative chronicle on the making of the offbeat indie dark comedy "The Hazing." The people interviewed are director Douglas Curtis as well as cast members Jeff East, David Hayward, and Jim Boelsen. Hayward reveals that he was cast because of his recent work in Robert Altman's "Nashville" and hence didn't have to audition for his role. Jeff East acknowledges that this movie marked a key transition from doing family fare for Disney to more challenging grown-up work and subsequently got him the part of young Clark Kent in "Superman." East also reveals that he had just lost his brother prior to acting in this picture. Boelsen admits that this movie will always have a special place in his heart because it was his acting debut; he talks about how he first met producer Dick Davis while working at a furniture store and convinced the filmmakers to give him an "introducing" credit at the start of the film. Everyone remembers Charles Martin Smith as a total professional and Brad David as a sweetheart in person with an uncanny knack for nailing the arrogant essence of his evil character. Not surprisingly, everybody was smitten with fetching actress Kelly Moran. Director Douglas Curtis praises the first assistant director for keeping him on track throughout the shoot and notes that everyone averaged twelve hours per day on the picture. Curtis also points out that the film received mostly favorable reviews and did pretty well at the box office despite the fact that it only had a limited theatrical release. Worth seeing for fans of this movie.
