Movie Info

Set in 1974, Ted Whitley (Bud Cort, in his first directorial feature) is a rather odd poet in Venice Beach, California who falls for the vision of his dreams, Linda Turner (Kim Adams). Linda is not only involved with someone else, but she is not interested in Ted on any romantic level whatsoever. He, being a bit obsessed, has a difficult time accepting this and pushes her farther away as he proceeds in excessive attempts to convince her to give him a chance. Appearing throughout the film are glimpses of various celebrities including Dr. Timothy Leary, Martin Mull, Woody Harrelson, Rhea Perlman, Gena Rowlands, Andrea Martin and Carol Kane.more
