Captain Milkshake
Filmed in 1969, a distribution rights dispute locked "Captain Milkshake" in litigation for years, but can finally be seen again! An "authentic 60's flashback" anti-Vietnam War film: a story of free love, cheap grass, and anti-war protests.

About the film: A young Marine (played by Geoff Gage) has two weeks leave from Vietnam to return home to Pacific Beach after his stepfather dies. He meets a young flower child, Melissa, (played by Andrea Cagan) who turns him on to marijuana, the hippie lifestyle, and the anti-war movement. Torn between his right-wing family and the hippies surrounding Melissa, Paul begins to question his reasons for being in Vietnam.

Filmed in San Diego, the movie includes scenes of Crystal Pier, Balboa Park, Vacation Village, La Jolla Cove, and Pacific Beach. Featuring a soundtrack by Country Joe and the Fish, Steve Miller Band, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Kaleidoscope!

"More than being a pioneer Vietnam film, 'Captain Milkshake' is a progenitor of counter-culture films. The open drug use, "free love," and motorcycle scenes anticipated those of Dennis Hopper's 'Easy Rider' by months" - Cashiers du Cinemart
