Claude Bukowski leaves the family ranch in Oklahoma for New York where he is rapidly embraced into the hippie group of youngsters led by Berger, yet he's already been drafted. He soon falls in love with Sheila Franklin, a rich girl but still a rebel inside.
This movie, based on the cult Broadway musical of the 60s, tells a story about Claude, a young man from Oklahoma who comes to New York City. There he strikes up a friendship with a group of hippies, led by Berger, and falls in love with Sheila, a girl from a rich family. However, their happiness is short because Claude must go to the Vietnam war.Written by

When Berger enters the camp in the borrowed car wearing the borrowed uniform, just before the MP raises the barrier, Berger wears sunglasses. The next shot, from the side, shows him in the car rolling through the gate without glasses. The next shot shows him front again, with the glasses back on. See more »
Woof, Hud, Berger:
Oh say, can you see my eyes? If you can, then my hair's too short.

I watch this at least once a year. What I've come to realize that this is a love story - not between Claude and Sheila - but between Berger and Claude, although I don't think Claude realizes it until it's too late. Next time you watch it, keep it in mind. It deepens the emotional impact of the incredible ending.
