The peak adventures, climactic decisions, and profound self-revelations of an inconceivable quartet of bosom buddies (four diverse types, from class prez to hot-rod hood, who would not utter two words to one another throughout four years of high school) are compressed into one long and lively night, placed vaguely at the end of summer, 1962. Non-stop pop songs, Sunset Strip culture, and putdown slang (twerp, dork, punk, etc.) are flung into the pot, knowingly, winkingly, nostalgically. The effusion, together with the confusion, produces an effect of lightness and abandon that is more like confetti than graffiti. With Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss, Candy Clark, and Cindy Williams; directed by George Lucas. (1973) — Duncan Shepherd
