I saw this in 1979 in a San Diego Navy base theater
I was about 20 years old.
It really hit home for me.
I was a young man coming into my own, striking out into the world on my own at last.
That is a big part of this movie--the sadness and wonder and power of being on your own.
Being a young person in California in the late 70s was also about drugs.
Drugs were a big part of that lifestyle for young people back then.
This movie and its music kind of captured that sort of lifestyle for those days.
