The coming of age classic directed by George Lucas, the film is told in a series of vignettes, each telling the story of a group of teenagers and their adventures over a single night.

On the last day of summer vacation in 1962, friends Curt (Richard Dreyfuss), Steve (Ronny Howard), Terry (Charles Martin Smith) and John (Paul Le Mat) cruise the streets of small-town California while a mysterious disc jockey (Wolfman Jack) spins classic rock'n'roll tunes. It's the last night before their grown-up lives begin, and Steve's high-school sweetheart, a hot-to-trot blonde, a bratty adolescent and a disappearing angel in a Thunderbird provide all the excitement they can handle.

Nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars and spawning the multi-million copy selling soundtrack of the same name, this film has been added to the United States Library of Congress who deemed the film "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry.

USA, 1973, Colour, 112min., Rated M, Dir. George Lucas
