Allan Arkush on

Get Crazy

Released 1983
Distributor Embassy Picture

Director Allan Arkush gives us the lowdown behind his film maudit, an underappreciated and certainly underseen followup to Rock N’ Roll High School which seems to have been deliberately buried by its producers despite a hip and happening cast. The distributor’s attention to detail is amply demonstrated by this awful trailer which bills writer Danny Opatashu under the name of his actor father David.
