You got it, Marsha. My favorite of their co starring vehicles.

Hi, lavender. You're absolutely correct!  Panic In The Streets is the film. As a staunch fan of Richard Widmark, I'm always looking out for his films. This particular film has a great cast of actors and top notch direction by Elia Kazan.  Good job!  It's your turn.

Thanks Star. I haven't seen this one in a long time, but I always liked the film very much. However, I always thought that was an awful title for the film.

It sounds like "The Bride Goes Wild" where Butch Jenkins lets loose the ants.

Yes it is The Bride Goes Wild. June Allyson and Van Johnson and Hume Cromyn and Butch as the little mischief.

I always get a kick out of this film I even have a copy of it, that's how much I like this film. Good job Marsha, your thread

Thanks, lavender. I really enjoy this film too especially Hume Cronyn's wonderfully hysterical comedic performance. I'm going to leave this thread open.

A hint, it was released in the late 1960s and showed the Haight Asbury hippie culture

It's called "Psych-Out" and it stars Susan Strasberg as the deaf girl, Bruce Dern as the brother, and a pre-"Easy Rider" Jack Nicholson as a member of a psychodelic rock group.  I haven't seen it.  I got the details from IMDB.

Correct, Miles.

It is worth seeing if you are a fan of the cast or of the period. The psychedelic rock group Strawberry Alarm Clock is heard performing their No. 1 hit "Incense And Peppermints"

A young fellow on his way to college for his freshman year meets a young lady going for her freshman year at a neighboring school.  There is an old saying that opposites attract and that is what happens in this movie.  He is shy, straight-laced and studious.  She is outspoken, quirky, and quite insecure.  She lives in her own little world where everyone else is considered a "wierdo".  Despite these differences, a romance develops, although it's a bit rocky.

Can you name this film?

Yes, with Liza Minnelli before she became a real big star.  Wendell Burton was the boy.  His career never really took off, although he did work in TV for some time.  The movie is remembered for the Oscar nominated song "Come Saturday Morning".   Here it is:

 

If you were of a similar age to the movie's characters when you first saw it, you probably really liked it.

 

Lawrence, you get to go next.
