BRIEF PLOT SUMMARY: SAL MINEO PLAYS A SEXUALLY DISTURBED YOUNG MAN WORKING AS A BUSBOY AT A DISCOTEQUE. HE BECOMES OBSESSED WITH A DISC JOCKEY EMPLOYEE OF THE DANCE CLUB (JULIET PROWSE). EVENTUALLY HIS PERVERTED PHONE CALLS & ACTIONS LEAD TO POLICE INTERVENTION. 

COMMENTS: ***MOST COMPLETE VERSION YET WITH FULL "POOL SCENE***, THIS IS A WONDERFULLY "CHEAP", STYLISHLY SHOT LITTLE FILM MASTERPIECE. REALISTICALLY FILMED ON LOCATION IN MID-60s NEW YORK CITY!
THE CAST IS PRETTY UNBELIEVABLE: YOU HAVE SAL MINEO (once hot Hollywood property-not the case in 1965), JULIET PROWSE (famous for her dancing-not acting), JAN MURRAY (certainly more at home on a TV game show panel than the big screen) & ELAINE STRITCH (playing a lonely lesbian-is known for her work on the Broadway stage.)
AS IF THAT WERE NOT ENOUGH, THE SOUNDTRACK MUSIC IS SUPERB 60s POP WRITTEN BY BOB GAUDIO (The Four Seasons) & AL KASHA WITH HELP FROM POP GIANT CHARLES CALLELO. THE STRANGELY BEAUTIFUL TITLE SONG WAS SUNG BY JOANIE SOMMERS..?.............AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, THEY STILL HAVE NOT RELEASED A FULL 94 MIN. VERSION FROM AN ORIGINAL FILM NEGATIVE!!...AS FAR AS COMMON KNOWLEDGE GOES, THIS VERSION FROM PRESSPLAYHOUSE IS THE ONLY (FULL RUNTIME) AVAILABLE OPTION.
