This film won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature of 1968. However, when it was discovered that the film had been shown in a single sneak preview in 1967, the film was declared ineligible and the Oscar was withdrawn just days after the ceremony. See more »
I saw The Young Americans in 1967 at the Cameo Theater on Washington Avenue and 13th Street in Miami Beach. I recall enjoying the singing of this highly talented group of "Young Americans". This film was made right before the explosion of 1968 & the "Hippie" movement which swept the "Young Americans". What really stands out to me was how the talented Ken Prymus went from being so slim and trim in this film to so heavy in the movie M.A.S.H. only three years later. I was so shocked that he had gained about 100 pounds. A really great singer and talent, whose weight increase, I feel, ruined a very promising singing career.
A cute film which captures an innocence which has long gone.
