| An earnest, well-made, very watchable film
This is a solid film that deserved a much better fate. It's well-written and directed and the story is compelling. Moreover, the actors are uniformly excellent including those both well known (Rita Moreno, James Darren) and not so well known (Asher Brauner, Henry Sanders, Michelle Davison). In addition, singer/songwriter Richie Havens both acts in the film (he too is quite good) and sings two very listenable songs on the soundtrack. Also, the film approaches issues of race & social standing in a very mature manner.
