Toomorrow (1970) (part 1 of 10)

The Cast of Characters:
Olivia Newton-John as OliviaOlivia (Olivia Newton-John). Pretty Britaustralianish singer. Acts as mother hen to the band, smoothing over all their problems, and even resorting to petty theft in the greater interests of love. Oh, and she’s a girl, but don’t hold that against her, okay?
Benny Thomas as BennyBenny (Benny Thomas). Handsome American singer/guitarist. Will sleep with anything in a short skirt, up to and including aliens dolled up to look like go-go dancers. Dreams of one day having three women rub suntan lotion on him.
Vic Cooper as VicVic (Vic Cooper). Pent-up British keyboard player. His homemade synthesizer’s wild beat may contain the key to universal happiness. Unfortunately, his girlfriend only likes classical music. Bummer!
Karl Chambers as KarlKarl (Karl Chambers). Groovy American drummer. Hey man, this is one groovy cat. Can you dig it?
Tracey Crisp as Suzanne GillmoreSuzanne Gillmore (Tracey Crisp). Music professor and Benny’s latest fling. The only character in the movie with even half a brain. She still gets demerits, though, for the whole Benny thing.
Roy Dotrice as John WilliamsJohn Williams (Roy Dotrice). Alien observer on Earth. His race has suddenly discovered they have to start listening to bad ‘70s pop music or they’ll all die. His reaction is the same as Jack Benny’s: “I’m thinking!”

Mark "Scooter" Wilson

Mark is a history guy, a graphics guy, a guy for whom wryly cynical assessments of popular culture are the scallion cream cheese on the toasted everything bagel of life. He spends his time teaching modern history at Brooklyn College, pondering the ancient Romans at the CUNY Graduate Center, and conjuring maps and illustrations for ungrateful bankers at various Manhattan monoliths. Readers are welcome to guess at reasons why he's nicknamed Scooter, with the proviso that all such submissions are guaranteed to be rather more interesting than the truth. Mark lives in the Midwood section of Brooklyn with a happy-go-lucky, flop-eared dog named Chiyo who is probably, at this very moment, waiting patiently for her walkies.
