Subtitled ‘Revolutions Per Minute’, this campus crisis meller slowly spins its improbable wheels to the climactic production number involving a student riot.

Anthony Quinn stars as an harassed college president, Ann-Margret is his plot-irrelevant young mistress, and Gary Lockwood is a student radical. The treatment is deja vu, Eric Segal’s script is replete with glib one-liners but lacking real story fibre, and Kramer’s direction is dull.

Quinn is introduced as a 53-year-old professor, risen to his post from Spanish Harlem and popular with his students. At the outset, the current college head has thrown in the towel as students have occupied the Administration Bldg, housing a big computer.

Lockwood, along with Paul Winfield, are the radical student leaders.
