The Happening (Columbia, 1967)
Four bored hippies from Miami unwittingly kidnap a retired Mafia kingpin turned successful businessman (Anthony Quinn) in this anti-establishment crime comedy. Only a minor success when released, “The Happening” is most notable today both as one of Faye Dunaway’s earliest films and for its self-titled theme song. Recorded by The Supremes, The Happening became a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 when released as a single on the Motown label. Directed by Elliot Silverstein (Cat Ballou), the cast also includes the late Michael Parks, George Maharis, Milton Berle, Robert Walker Jr. and Martha Hyer.
