"A tale of young love and desire...roaming the bars, the caverns, the pads and lofts and the clangorous confines of the extroverts, introverts, and perverts!" - N.Y. Times
The review on Wikipedia states: "The film involves a early sixties point of view of women's health, sexual rights, and the sexual revolution from a singularly male perspective. The protagonist is forced to make choices after getting pregnant out of wedlock. Filmed in Greenwich village and the Berkshires including a hysterical faux nude swimming scene filmed on Lake Garfield, Mass in which during the shoot surrounding fisherman edged closer and closer to the dock on which the scene takes place in hopes of getting a better view. In editing the sounds of motorboat engines threatened to take over the scene's audio and was replaced by prerecorded crickets. The end effect was to give the scene a sinister invasion-of-the-giant-insects vibe."
Regrettably, this extraordinary entertainment is not currently available on dvd.
