Format: DVD
Filmed on "The University of the Pacific" campus in Stockton, R.P.M. (political REVOLUTIONS per minute) at the time of its 1970 release was regarded as the worst of the "counterculture-revolution-on-campus" sub-genre of films. It has not improved with age and almost 45 years later is notable only for two good "Melanie" songs "Stop! I Don't Wanna' Hear It Anymore" and "We Don't Know Where We're Goin" which play over three nice montage sequences of the President of fictional Hudson College coming and going to the campus Administration Building.

Its fundamental problem (other than having hacks like Stanley Kramer as acting for-the-camera director and Erich Segal as writer) is that the focus is on adults rather than on students. Although casting an aging Gary Lockwood as the student leader meant than no viewer at the time imagined the film would ever have an authentic texture. Even the extras playing the sundry students look to be in their thirties; perhaps their list of demands included unrestricted access to the swimming pool in "Cocoon".

The adults are Ann-Margret (Rhoda) and Anthony Quinn (Prof. F.W.J. 'Paco' Perez), whose performances simply do not complement each other in the few scenes they have together (blame Kramer's directing). Ann's big emotional scene midway through the film is an absolute mockfest moment. Poor Ann was one of those women who did not age gently but rather by plateau; she hit her first one in the late 1960's - almost overnight losing all her youthful glow. The idea was to make a 53 year-old professor seem hip because he lived with his 25-year-old graduate student, but the age disparity seems less between them than between Rhonda and a typical graduate student.

Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child.

Bought this as I am an Ann Margret fan, but she is really not in the film enough. The story is really not very interesting at all. Not a must see!

I'm a huge fan of Ann Margret. In my searches for films with her in it I found R.P.M.. I don't think the interaction between Anthony Quinn and Ann Margret worked for me. In fact maybe that's why this movie is a bit hard to find. In any case it's Ann Margret and I'm happy to have it in my collection.

In this 1970 film written by Eric Segal(Love Story).Anthony Quinn portrays a liberal thinking professor who becomes College President after the former College Professor is bounced out by the student activists. a peaceful Quinn is then put at odds by those same activists when they threaten to use violence on their own campus for their own gains.This is an excellent College Campus thriller that was so reminscent of that period in the late 60's and early 70's!!
