The terrible trio of Summer of 42 has graduated high school. Now the real learning begins. Gary Grimes, Jerry Houser and Oliver Conant return in writer Herman Rauchers continued tale of coming of age in World War IIs shadow. For Benjy (Conant), 1944is a time to serve his country. Hermie (Grimes) and Oscy (Houser) want to enlist but they also serve who stand and study! At their parents insistence, they enroll at an eastern university. There, Oscy asserts his priorities: football and a curvaceous 32-year-old pass receiver of another kind. Hermie falls for an aspiring journalist (Deborah Winters), a romance that forms the movies central story. Directed with sensitivity by five-time Emmy winner Paul Bogart and suffused with details of wartime home front life, Class of 44 graduates with honors. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
