1h 40m | Drama | Release date: October 18, 1973 (Spain)
A young American boy unable to overcome a speech defect is disturbed by the constant bickering of his parents, and when they get divorced, he slides into an emotional breakdown.
In the early 70s, I never heard of a kid actor named Scott Jacoby. Then one week I saw him in like 3 movies in a row airing in the middle of the night. Baxter! isn’t as good as “Bad Ronald,” but it held my interest even though I was just a kid, and it’s still a great film today. Scott plays this kid Roger with a lisp and he has to get speech therapy. He kinda comes of age while going through this. Sounds kind simple, and it is, but it has some intense moments. Good stuff.
