Directed by: Phil Joanou

Screenplay by: Richard Christian Matheson, Thomas Szollosi

Starring: Casey Siemaszko, Annie Ryan, Richard Tyson, and Stacey Glick.

Synopsis (courtesy of Wikipedia): Three O’Clock High is a 1987 high-school comedy film, directed by Phil Joanou, written by Richard Christian Matheson and Thomas Szollosi, and produced by Aaron Spelling. It was filmed at Ogden High School in Ogden, Utah, but, in part, was inspired by Joanou’s own experiences at La Canada High School. Though it did not do very well at the box office, the film is a minor cult classic among high school films. It shows high school as most people remember it, with mundane days punctuated by occasional thrills.
