The Summer of Apartment X
Fred Winger and his two buddies, Richard and Brian, intend to take the beach resort town by storm. It's the fateful summer between high school and university, early 1970s version. Equipped with two barely mobile cars and a seized up MG motor, they plan to rent an apartment, get jobs, meet girls, and lose their virginity.
307 1/2 Hibiscus Street is an old triplex subdivided for summer tenants into a self-contained ghetto. The only window in Apartment X is in the kitchenette, and the entrance is through the outdoor shower used by the entire building. The friends find work: Brian cleans the parking lot and grill of a grease-encrusted burger joint. Richard preens himself on his lofty though brief position as a lifeguard. Fred replaces the drunken usher at the Queen Theater, where monsters slavering over shrieking blondes and Annette Funicello's bursting brassier entertain necking teens and "pervs" too timid to patronize real porn flicks.
