1973 Milwaukie High School film - Pawns of Folly, with Richard Geer and Ron Juchemich
My father, Bill Griffith, would often tease Richard Geer about the films we were making. He said they were too serious and we should make a comedy. Richard was up to the challange and "Pawns of Folly" was the result.

The second film produced this year also had a lot of comedy elements. A lot of scenes were shot at Milwaukie High School. We filmed in the auditorium for the first time. This was Richard's classroom in his real life role of drama teacher.

I've never seen the unicorn at dawn,
Before I wake up, he usually is gone,
But would I know him if he ever came along,
Or think him merely one more Something Beyond.

 

There are some things I never ever said,
Some words still wondering around in-side my head;
They lie here waiting for the dawn of love to come,
Or are they waiting for Something Beyond.

 

There are some YOND.
Beyond the day, beyond the day,
Beyond the thirty-third of April and the Fourty-first of May.
It well may be I'll never come to see the secret secrets on
        the darker side of me;
But I'll keep looking 'til the need to look is gone,
My arms reach out toward SOMETHING BEYOND.
