Lake is an unusual boy: he is a young man with an old soul who discovers he has an odd fixation on the elderly. Realizing that some day, if fate allows, he will be one himself, he is particularly fascinated by old men.

Although Lake has a girlfriend his own age, named Desiree, he wonders sometimes if his fixation on old men is unnatural and unhealthy - perhaps even sexual. When his mother, who is a nurse, takes on a management job at an old folks home, Lake jumps at her offer of a summer job as an orderly there. Gradually, Lake comes to discover that the old people in the institution are being given psychotropic drugs to keep them in a catatonic state. Lake befriends one old man in particular, Mr. Peabody, who still seems to have some fight left in him. They begin to form a strong bond. Mr. Peabody charms Lake with romantic stories of his youth and ...

Ashley H (br) wrote: Shampoo is a decent film. It is about lovers who undo a hairdresser from Beverly Hills around Election Eve in 1968. Warren Beatty, Goldie Hawn, and Julie Christie give good performances. The script is enjoyable but a little slow in places. Hal Ashby did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the romance and humor.

He is plagued by an outbreak of rabbit that kill all the insects and plants that he uses to make a living. He has a meeting with a college professor about the issue who talks to a zoologist friend. The zoologist injects the rabbits with a hormone that makes them huge and man eating. Can the three men stop the man eating rabbits?"Since the injections the rabbits have increased in size."William Claxton, director of Little House on the Prairie, Bonanza, Stage to Thunder Rock, A Letter to Nancy, Desire in the Dust, and Young Jesse James, delivers Night of the Lepus. The storyline for this picture is just okay and as you'd expect for the genre. The special effects were also mediocre and the cast delivers average performances. The cast includes Stuart Whitman, Janet Leigh, Rory Calhoun, DeForest Kelley, Paul Fix, and William Elliot. "What do we have here, a vampire?""Probably."I grabbed this movie off Turner Classic Movies (TCM) this past Halloween season. The idea of large man-eating rabbits fascinated me; and as you'd expect, this was a bland horror picture that used close up shots of rabbits to create the illusion of "large man-eating rabbits." Unfortunately, this is a less than average addition to the genre."I've never seen anything like this before."Grade: D+/C-
Aj V (ag) wrote: Yes, there's a cool cast, but the story is stupid and it's a boring submarine movie too. As much as I enjoyed seeing Lorre, Fontaine, Eden, Pidgeon, Sterling, and Avalon in a movie together, the movie itself wasn't worthy of having them in it. I don't recommend this movie.
