Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
High school students struggle for social status and acceptance from the opposite sex in Out Of It. Paul (Barry Gordon) is the shy boy who asks the blonde cheerleader Christine (Lada Edmund Jr.) for a date. The two see Romeo and Juliet, but Christine tells Paul she is feeling ill. After he brings her home, he discovers she made the excuse to keep a date with Russ (John Voight), the quarterback on the football team. As the rivalry between the two teenage boys heats up, Russ injures Paul during football practice and later burns his varsity jacket. Paul retaliates by grabbing a toy handgun and humiliating Russ in front of his friends. This feature was made in 1967 and purchased for release by United Artists in the wake of Voight's role in the massively successful Midnight Cowboy. Gretchen Corbett and Peter Grad also appear in the film.
