Daniel Kremer on

The Magic Garden of Stanley Sweetheart

Released 1970
Distributor MGM

From the era of oddly named anti-heroes (Quackser Fortune, Heironymus Merkin, Duddy Kravitz) comes the bed-hopping adventures of Stanley Sweetheart, a busy undergrad searching for love in all the wrong places. Directed by Leonard Horn and written by Robert T. Westbrook, this was the film debut of Don Johnson. The movie got hit with an X rating before MGM snipped the offending passages.

About Daniel Kremer

San Francisco filmmaker Daniel Kremer has provided audio commentary tracks for Kino Lorber, Shout! Factory, AGFA, and Scorpion disc releases, and essays for Twilight Time special editions. His acclaimed epic-length film Overwhelm the Sky (2019), adapted from a 1799 American Gothic novel, was screened internationally in classic  roadshow format, complete with overture, intermission, and printed souvenir programs.

He is currently under contract at Oxford University Press for the first book about Joan Micklin Silver.
