Storyline

Kevin is wandering through the confused haze that most college students pass through at one time or another: lectures that make little - if any - sense, pranks by the fraternities and sororities, deep yet meaningless discussions on philosophy with ones friends. Through all of this, Kevin passes in and out of a dream-like fantasy world, in which he and his friends sail the ship 'Queen of Sheba' to a variety of islands, with natives both friendly and hostile. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

In the general Seattle area, including the suburbs, the film actually opened in 8 theaters, including the Rainier Cinema in south Seattle. The producers engaged those locations via four-walling. The film only played for one week, and box office receipts were hurt by a freak Seattle snowstorm. See more »

The film was first released in 1970
15 April 2008 | by joblaSee all my reviews

The film was theatrically released in December of 1970, but may have only played Seattle. The filmmakers were young professional filmmakers based in Seattle. They "four-walled" a local theater, the Rainier Cinema in Columbia City, to launch the premiere engagement. Unfortunately, there was an atypical Seattle snowstorm that kept most patrons away. I drove through the snow to attend, and I think that there were maybe two other people in the entire theater.

The first ten or fifteen minutes were projected without sound, ironic given the film's title. The movie was so experimental that we weren't initially certain if there was supposed to be sound, or not.

There was a soundtrack album released on a very small label, but local stores didn't stock it. You pretty much "had to know someone" in order to acquire a copy of the LP. The score was promoted as being the first film score to be completely composed on a Moog Synthesizer. There was one vocal song, entitled "Didn't You Hear?", that was played once or twice during the film.

Gary Busey and Dennis Christopher went on to bigger things, as did female lead Cheryl Waters, who starred in MACON COUNTY LINE (1974). She acted as recently as 1998.
