Gas-s-s-s

Ostensibly about the actions of the under-25s of the world, as displayed by a sample group in Texas, when an experimental gas kills off all those over that age, most of the screenplay is devoted to moving a group of six young people along the highways to a New Mexican commune where they've heard 'a brave new world' awaits them.

Ostensibly about the actions of the under-25s of the world, as displayed by a sample group in Texas, when an experimental gas kills off all those over that age, most of the screenplay is devoted to moving a group of six young people along the highways to a New Mexican commune where they’ve heard ‘a brave new world’ awaits them.

Obstacles appear in the form of automobile rustlers, headed by a character who calls himself Billy the Kid. After a night of rest, recuperation and rocking at a drive-in theatre, they encounter a gang of football players who try to force them to join the team (whose motto is loot, burn and rape), but they escape.

A brief idyll at the commune is threatened when the fascistic footballers lay siege, but they’re converted just in time.

Robert Corff and Elaine Giftos, despite their top billing, devote most of their screen time smiling at and admiring each other’s hair, which is almost of equal length.
