The story of two high school students: one a socially inept intellectual, the other a not-so-bright football hero and lady killer.– Paul’s first film is a crisp black and white story inspired by his own high school years (shot by John G. Avildsen) about a horny charismatic nerd played by Barry Gordon (“A Thousand Clowns”) and his teenage travails, which include being bullied by a dumb jock played by Jon Voight in his first film. Shades of “Fablemans”.


Part of the retrospective Harvard, Hollywood, Hitmen, and Holy Men: The Films Of Paul Williams.

And cats.
