YOUR THREE MINUTES ARE UP 1973
U.S. film. "Buy now. Pay never." Two buddies take a road trip that changes their lives. Mark Lindsay of Paul Revere and the Raiders sings two very good 60s-vibe pop songs; "Get a Hold of Yourself" and "It's Only Me."

It's 1973 Los Angeles and two pals approaching thirty are having a hard time adjusting to growing up. Mike (Ron Liebman) is a single, obnoxious, womanizing partier who only lives for today. Charlie (Beau Bridges) is a responsible, repressed insurance clerk who plans on marrying his uptight girlfriend who disapproves of Mike's irresponsible ways.

Unemployed Charlie has maxed out all but one of his credit cards and the bill collectors are knocking on his door. He convinces Charlie to skip out of work and join him on what becomes crazy credit-card-paid road trip up the California coast.

Along the way Mike cons and schemes while Charlie telephones his fiancé. The guys con two girls into believing they're famous film producers. They take them to an expensive restaurant, then sneak out leaving the girls to pay the bill. Finally, Charlie really loosens up—but maybe he shouldn't, as the results aren't what you'd expect.

Your Three Minutes Are Up highlights the change in social values during the early seventies, as the youth of the 1960s became adults in the 1970s. Lots of terrific footage of early 70s Los Angeles and Santa Monica while the guys road-trip in their convertible Mustang. Beau Bridges, Ron Leibman, Janet Margolin, Kathleen Freeman, David Ketchum, Stuart Nisbet, Jennifer Ashley, Gertrude Linkmeyer, Sherry Bain, June Fairchild (former Gazzarri dancer!), Kitty Carl.

Plus this bonus selection...

YOU'RE THE JUDGE 1965
U.S. short film. The makers of "Crisco" vegetable shortening want you to believe you're watching a sitcom, but it's really a commercial starring teenaged (70s sitcom star) Bonnie Franklin. Mother regularly interrupts the girl's conversation to remind them that "Crisco" would be a perfect solution to their cooking situation. In the end the girls give in to mid-sixties male/female stereotypes and let the boys win the contest.
