Bus Riley's Back in Town (1965)

Directed by Harvey Hart.

With Ann-Margret, Michael Parks, Kim Darby, Jocelyn Brando, Larry Storch, Brett Somers, Janet Margolin

Bus Riley's Back in Town is a movie written by William Inge, directed by Harvey Hart, and starring Ann-Margret and Michael Parks.
Inge, who had been one of America's top playwrights and screenwriters since the early 1950s, was very unhappy with changes made to his script, apparently to highlight Ann-Margret's character. He had his name removed from the credits, replacing it with the name "Walter Gage." It turned out to be the last of Inge's works brought to the screen during his lifetime.
Though Ann-Margret was the film's best-known cast member, trailers for "Bus Riley" heavily promoted Parks as Hollywood's next big star. However, the movie had only modest success, and did little for Parks' career.
The drama depicts a man returning to his small Midwestern hometown after three years in the Navy and trying to make a life for himself. He suffers a series of personal and career disappointments.
Early in the movie, Riley discovers that an older male friend who has promised him a mechanic's job wants a live-in sexual relationship as part of the bargain. A disillusioned Riley walks out.
