Captain Milkshake was the first dramatic film to deal with the controversial issues around the Vietnam War: Paul, a young marine on leave, comes home to discover the anti-war movement complete with free love, cheap grass and a flower-child peace activist named Melissa. Still haunted by flashbacks from his trip to Vietnam, Paul finds himself caught in the midst of changing times. Both his conservative relatives and the new brand of privileged counterculture chums now seem equally naïve to the realities of war, and Pauls world turns upside down. Originally released in 1970, Captain Milkshake was quickly pulled from distribution. Unfortunately, Captain Milkshake is a casuality of a war between Crawford and his distibutor. Decades later, Crawford has only recently regained the rights to his own film. Now that the US is once again at war overseas, Captain Milkshake takes on new meanings for yet another generation seeking answers in a perplexing time.
