The administrators of Wyndham Girl's College believe their institution is the model of traditional values, proper decorum and girl's deportment. There is however a thriving underground movement at the college of rock music. When the administrators learn just prior to the Christmas break that one of their students, Terry Taylor, is a renowned rock music songwriter using the pseudonym Joanie Harper whose songs contain seductively feminist lyrics, they have to decide how to deal with Terry, an otherwise academically bright student, and this possible scandal to the school. Meanwhile, many of the students head to Sun Valley for the Christmas break. Among those at the resort are the college's benefactor, Senator Hubert Morrison, who is conflicted between what he believes is Terry's immoral stance and courting the youth vote through their unofficial leader Terry, and Gary Underwood, Terry's publisher.

The Animals perform "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood". The song was originally written for Nina Simone. Her version is slower. Much later, a disco/flamenco version was released by Santa Esmerelda. See more »

Great Music
21 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

The acting and production values of this movie are about on a par with something like Don Knotts' The Reluctant Astronaut or one of those sixties Disney movies starring Haley Mills. Or one of the Ronald Reagan Bonzo movies. Not awful, but definitely in the "B" movie category.

The music is what makes this movie worth watching. Stan Getz's performance of the Girl from Ipanema, with a very deadpan vocal by Astrud Gilberto, is one high point.

The Dave Clark Five is also deadpan, wooden even, and it is easy to see why they didn't surpass the Beatles as some in the sixties thought they might. Classic performances by the Standells and the Animals are here too.

Along with Stan Getz, the Jimmy Smith Trio provides some great jazz.

A fun look into what middle-aged Hollywood screenwriters thought the younger generation was up to. Well worth watching. The studio is missing an opportunity by not releasing this film on DVD. I had to buy mine bootleg on an on-line auction.
