fun for locals to see
30 January 2005 | by jonixonSee all my reviews

this movie contains some scenes that are significant to residents of Las Cruces, NM, where it was filmed. The opening scene shows the first phase of the downtown remodeling of the late 60's a former county commissioner has a small speaking part. The explosion of the radio tower was part of the move of a local station, KOBE, from one part of town to it's current location. Cutaways during the showing of the "porno film" have locals who were lured to the filming being told they would see the 'Sound of Music' not realizing there reactions would be cutaways in the porno angle of the film. The New Mexico State University band was put in the film in the basketball arena which was a year old at the time. The film is a typical 60's farce and probably not as interesting to those who aren't from here
