I was one of the extras in a movie called "The Explosive Generation"
starring William Shatner. (1962)
As you probably were aware parts of it were filmed at Mesa High. Maybe even you were in it too! A friend was able to find the movie on Amazon and surprised me with it this past Christmas. I really enjoyed watching it.
I thought you might like to know that it exists and can be found on Amazon for anyone interested.
I've attached a screen shot off of the movie screen. I'm in the black and white (lol)shirt next to the title. We were a bunch of good looking teenagers!
