Mystery Movie: KISS THE TEACHER GOODBYE! (1975)
The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) claims KISS THE TEACHER GOODBYE! is the "promotional title" of TRIP WITH THE TEACHER, but the official Crown International Pictures ad slick above - from the summer of '75 - blasts that theory in the ass by featuring both of those titles on the same triple bill. Please note the lack of an MPAA rating for our mystery movie, a possible tip-off that it isn't rated R like the other two films on the bill. In fact, we have several newspaper ads for KISS THE TEACHER GOODBYE that sport a PG rating, leading us to believe that it's a re-titling of THE YOUNG GRADUATES, a GP-rated Crown release from '71 in which a romance between teacher Tom Stewart and student Patricia Wymer leads to a pregnacy scare and is the catalyst for the latter's runaway road trip to Big Sur. But that's just an educated guess. Anyone know for sure what this is?
