Arlo Guthrie's song is converted into a motion picture. Arlo goes to see Alice for Thanksgivng and as a favor takes her trash to the dump. When the dump is closed, he drops it on top of another pile of garbage at the bottom of a ravine. When the local sheriff finds out a major manhunt begins. Arlo manages to survive the courtroom experience but it haunts him when he is to be inducted into the army via the draft. The movie follows the song with Arlo's voice over as both music and narration.

The Jesuit priests did not appear to have realized what the theme of the movie was, and some didn't approve of doing something that would promote the new 'liberal' culture that was evolving. The filming was very short-lived at Cranwell. See more
