___ Tom: And when did we start listening to crackpots anyhow? Stanley: When I started dying, Tom. That's when. ___ No matter how you swing it, you gotta watch this motion picture from the brainchild of Mike Furlong. Furlong wrote, starred in, and directed The Partisan . Exhaustively shot on locations throughout Ashland, OR including the now defunct Pizza Hut, this production was collaborated with Furlongs associates from I Kappa Foo , a short run college indy show.
Welcome to the story of Stanley Dent. Stanley's ex-girlfriend Karen has just returned home from a Paris honeymoon with her new husband, Dr. Chuck Handley. Stanley has just stolen Karen's expensive Partisan cat with the help of his good friend Tom Maddox.
Stanley's filming is in full swing, but the students wonder if he's taking it a little too far. Tom starts to wonder if Stanley may be losing control, but is sidetracked by his own dilemmas when it appears that the Doctor is smearing Tom's name all over town.
With only one student still willing to work on the musical, Stanley goes forth to finish the remaining scenes. Tom tries to go on a relaxing break from the madness in a local park, but an overly-righteous chick harasses him and attempts to take the Partisan for it's own safety. Stanley catches her with the Partisan and wrestles her for it before Tom rescues it and flees.
