On a tour of campuses showing his directorial debut, a feature film called The Young Lovers, Samuel Goldwyn Jr. spoke with students after a showing of the film in Blodgett Hall.  The film intrigued the students, who “especially” liked —according to Eugene Archer, writing in The New York Times—“a scene in which young Sharon Hugueny’s mother returns home unexpectedly to find her daughter’s beau, Peter Fonda, taking his early morning shower.”

Mr. Goldwyn defended his choice of young and unknown actors, although it made finding funding for the film even more difficult.  “Everyone said, get Tony Curtis,” Goldwyn said, “but he isn’t an adolescent.  Where can you find teen-age stars today?”  The students sponsoring the event confided in the young director that they had formed their own company, “Carborundum Films,” and they asked his advice about how they should go about making a film.  “I try to encourage them,” he said, “but I also…try to tell the truth.  Making experimental films in 16-mm., using college friends and faculties in the cast so they’ll have a ready-made audience, is a fine idea.  Then they ask how they can get the film distributed outside their college and make a profit….  I tell them I have exactly the same problem myself.”     The New York Times
