ALMOST SUMMER 1978
U.S. film. Unedited version. Dig the 70's clothes and haircuts! In retrospect this movie paved the way for films like, "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."

Bobby DeVito (Bruno Kirby) is the "senior campaign strategist" in a highly contested high school student body presidential election. Christine Alexander (Lee Purcell) is Bobby's former girlfriend who's almost guaranteed to win the election...because her opponent got suspended!

To settle a personal score for breaking up with him, Bobby puts up an unknown candidate, Darryl Fitzgerald (John Friedrich), to beat Christine. Teen angst, anger, jealously, high school prom, love...and FUN!

Many in the cast went on to achieve varying levels of fame: Bruno Kirby, Tim Matheson, Didi Conn and Lee Purcell. Skateboard alert: Three professional skateboarders appear in the film, Bryan Beardsley, Ty Page, and Mark Bowden.

Brian Wilson and Mike Love of the Beach Boys wrote the "Almost Summer" theme song. Mike Love sings the songs on the soundtrack in a very Beach Boys influenced style. Other songs include: "A Little Bit Like Magic," "Chief Joseph," "Island Girl." Bruno Kirby, Lee Purcell, John Friedrich, Didi Conn, Thomas Carter, Tim Matheson, Petronia Paley, David Wilson, Sherry Hursey, Harvey Lewis.

Plus this bonus selection...

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO MARY JANE? 1975
Sipped and smoked—this TV news program compares alcohol and marijuana via demonstration by putting kids in a room and filming them get drunk and stoned. The announcer then discusses the mental, physical and societal aspects. Listen for sitar music! One kid got so drunk he had to stay in the studio overnight because he was too messed up to go home!
