Trivia

Randall Adams and David Harris saw this movie at a Dallas drive-in on November 28, 1976--it was the second of a double header preceded by The Student Body (1976). Both mentioned their attendance in alibis while being investigated for the murder of Dallas police officer Robert W. Wood. Adams also said that he had to leave this movie before it was finished, as he didn't feel comfortable with its content. Adams' eventual conviction was the subject of the movie The Thin Blue Line (1988). See more »

Wasn't Nearly as Graphic as I Initially Thought
23 February 2014 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

Needing another member for the cheerleading squad at Mesa State College the cheerleaders open tryouts for anyone who might be interested. As it so happens a student by the name of "Kate Corie" (Jo Johnston) auditions and is accepted even though the head cheerleader "Mary Ann Putnam" (Colleen Camp) is jealous of her for flirting with her boyfriend "Buck Larsen" (Ron Hajak) who happens to be the star quarterback. What nobody knows however is that Kate only wants to join the squad to dig up some dirt for her journalism term paper. And in the course of her work she discovers a lot more than people fully realize. Anyway, rather than divulge anymore of the plot and risk spoiling the movie for those who haven't seen it I will just say that this particular film had a reputation for being somewhat sleazy when it first came out. However, while it certainly had some nudity and scenes of a sexual nature, it wasn't nearly as graphic as I had initially thought back then. Likewise, although it was definitely a low-budget drive-in type of movie that one would find back in the mid-70's, it had a fairly interesting plot which managed to keep my attention for the most part. At any rate, while it certainly wasn't a blockbuster film by any means it wasn't that terribly bad either. Accordingly, I give it an average rating.
