(George Axelrod, US 1966, 105 min)
Class Clowns. Member’s Movie Night! Noted Broadway wit Axelrod’s directorial debut is a manic teenybopper satire that can’t even settle on a target for more than 30 seconds: beach movies, popular girls, dirty old men, California, drive-by churches, consumerism, public schools, and the erotic thrall of cashmere to name a few. Naïve high schooler Roddy McDowall tries to impress nymphomaniac Tuesday Weld by helping her overcome her embarrassing roots and gain entry into an exclusive social club. Too bad she’d rather run off with shady preacher Martin West. Free to Museum members.
