This movie was featured in Playboy back in 1971 when the movie first came out. While I never saw the movie I did see the spread in Playboy. The movie is a teenage boy’s dream, a  high school filled with beautiful girl that believe in free love. In the center of all these open minded girls is the football coach Michael “Tiger” McDrew (Rock Hudson) and his virgin, team manager Ponce de Leon Harper (John David Carson). Add Miss Betty Smith(Angie Dickinson) a hot horny substitute teacher and hard boiled Police Captain Sam Surcher(Telly Savalas).

On the surface this movie is a murder mystery, one where you know the killer a few minutes into the show and wait for the cast to figure it out. This movie is really about sex–the best scene is where Ponce is walk along checking out all the hot girls.

The story is weak, the acting not much better, but you get to see Angie Dickinson nude, lots of hot girls and a couple of actors from Star Trek.
