This movie came out when I was in college and I remember going with a girlfriend to see it - I liked Raymond St. Jacques a lot & still remember him -I loved it! He was so gorgeous and such a good actor - Back then - about 40 years ago (egad !), it was a daring film, and is thus a period piece - I remember the love scenes - I remember thinking how much they cared for each other - You cannot possibly watch this movie without being into what the times were like - I had marched through Harlem only maybe a few years before: the first march through Harlem with all of us together (as I was very active at CIty College (NY)) - Free sex was in its beginnings. The whole audience was hooting and exclaiming through the whole thing - it was really fun! My first experience with that kind of participating audience - the movie might not be the greatest, but the acting is worth it - just for Raymond St. Jacques himself! I've been wanting to see it again for a long time. It's part of the 60's . . .
