Hair, the Broadway rock musical sensation of 1968, would find its way to the big screen over a decade later under the masterful direction of two-time Academy Award® winner Milos Forman (Best Director - One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest - 1976, Amadeus - 1985) in a film adaptation as magical as it is timeless.

Based on the Gerome Ragni, James Rado and Galt MacDermot stage musical, Hair stars John Savage (The Deer Hunter) as naïve country boy Claude Hooper Bukowski, a Vietnam War draftee who travels to New York where he’s swept up in a world of free love, hallucinogens and romance, courtesy of hippies Berger (Treat Williams), Jeannie (Annie Golden), Hud (Dorsey Wright) and Woof (Don Dacus). Beverly D’Angelo co-stars as Sheila, a beautiful debutante and the object of Claude’s affections.

Hair boasts a catalog of hit songs — “Good Morning Starshine,” “I Got Life,” “Hair,” “Where Do I Go” — ingeniously staged and adeptly performed by its cast, including a heartbreaking rendition of “Easy to Be Hard,” a showstopper for actress Cheryl Barnes in her one and only screen performance.

Hair features an array of behind-the-camera talent including Academy  Award® winners director Milos Forman (Best Director for One Flew Over  the Cuckoo’s Nest and Amadeus), film editor Alan Heim (Best Film  Editing, All That Jazz) and costume designer Ann Roth (Best Costume  Design, The English Patient).
