Wild In The Streets (1968)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Max Frost, a 22-year old rock star millionaire, joins causes with a California politician to get the vote for 14-year old. (Hence the song "14 or fight!") He continues his master plan by helping elect one of his groupies to the senate. Max and his cohorts resort to trickery to get congress to lower the minimum age requirements for higher office, and he's on his way to the Oval Office with his youth-controlled police state agenda.
If you're thirty, you're through!

More Movie Taglines:
- If you're thirty, you're through!
- This is the story of Max Frost, 24 years old...President of the United States...who created the world in his own image. To him, 30 is over the hill. 52% of the nation is under 25...and they've got the power. That's how he became President...it's perhaps the most unusual motion picture you will ever see!
- Sally Leroy: America's greatest contribution has been to teach the world that getting old is such a drag.
Mrs. Daphne Flatow: Senator, I'm sure my son has a very good reason for paralyzing the country.
Max Jacob Flatow Jr alias Frost: How old do you think I am? Young Mary Fergus: About a hundred. Max Jacob Flatow Jr alias Frost: I'm 24. Young Mary Fergus: That's old.
Stanley X: [cupping his hand toward Allbright's ear, as they discuss lowering the voting age] They let th' OLD FOLKS in th' OLD FOLKS HOME vote!
Max Jacob Flatow Jr alias Frost: I have nothing against our current President... that's like running against my own grandfather. I mean, what do you ask a 60-year-old man? - You ask him if he wants his wheelchair FACING the sun, or facing AWAY from the sun. But running the country? FORGET IT, babies!
- American International Pictures originally offered the role of Max Frost to noted folk singer-songwriter Phil Ochs, who was known at the time to want to branch out into film work. However, after reading the screenplay, Ochs rejected it, stating the story presented the youth counterculture of the 1960s in a badly distorted light.
"The Shape of Things to Come", written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, was a #22 chart hit for Max Frost and the Troopers (a "studio group", made up of session musicians) in 1968. In 2006, it was featured in commercials for Target Stores.
