The Happeners
1966, 50 min, USA, Dir: David Greene

Written by Ernest Kinoy and produced by Herb Brodkin, this unsold pilot about a folk-rock trio in New York City offers a somewhat more serious take on youth culture and rock music than “The Monkees.” Lead actors Craig Smith, Chris Ducey and Suzannah Jordan all went on to careers in music; Smith and Ducey formed the singing duo Chris and Craig before forming cult group Penny Arkade. With Louis Gosset, Jr., Lou Jacobi and an appearance by the Dave Clark Five.
