Larry Karaszewski on

The Steagle

Released 1971
Distributor AVCO Embassy Pictures

In a decade of oddities, Paul Sylbert’s 1971 satire is high on the list of unconventional entertainments. Set in the fall of 1962, Richard Benjamin plays a professor so unnerved by the Cuban missile crisis he sets out on a cross-country tour of America, changing his identity in each new city. Chill Wills and Cloris Leachman lead the appropriately eccentric supporting cast.
