Trivia

The "Harvard" students for the riot scene, filmed at Bridgewater State College, were recruited from the varsity sports teams of Bridgewater State College, and via announcements on Boston radio stations. See more »

Goofs

The characters entered Harvard in 1967 and presumably were to graduate in 1971, and it shows them as apparently the first class involved with the draft lottery, which affected only seniors. However, the first class involved with the lottery was actually that of 1970, and the movie accurately shows the first ball being pulled from the drum with a date of September 14 in the drawing held for the 1970 class.

True classic bringing our college life in the 60's to the screen, nostalgic and accurate, and deeply appreciated. I know of no other film which makes it possible for the x-generation to get a glimpse of how we baby boomers emerged.
