Though its title may have been an attempt to cash in on the then popular "Summer of '43" sequel, "Class of '63" was one of ABC's best movie of the week offerings in the 70s. The plot concerns the ten year reunion of a group of college students, one of whom has hommicidal intentions towards his former classmates, stemming from a romantic slight. But it's not a by the numbers revenge flick. The script is literate and intelligent, Korty's direction is very sharp, and the acting (especially by Cliff Gorman and Joan Hackett) is surprisingly good. I would call it almost noirish. And there is a haunting use of the song "Louise," that contributes to the suspense.
