Remember that horror movie When a Stranger Calls? The babysitter gets a repeated freaky call from a stranger asking, in measured terror tones, “Have you checked the children lately?”
Well, that movie, and its resounding iconic question, ironically came out about the time that today’s Retro Pic of the Day was taken. And, rather, on the minds of the parents of many RFH teens back then was more recurrent chant of “Have you checked the teens lately?”
Well, maybe. Maybe not. But, if and/or when these guys were checked on, the above scene, or something similar, is what parents would have found. Good, ol’ harmless goofing around. No, there was no boogyman after these teens on a hot summer’s day at a Sea Bright beach in the late 1970s.
They did a good enough job scaring one another with their own mere presence (in a good way, of course) and pranks.
You have to wonder how many times it took for them to perfect this little pyramid by the seashore without tripping one another up. Hmmmm.
Recognize any of these clowns, uh, I mean fine upstanding Rumson fellas? Wait, one of these guys is from the Class of ’78. Guess who.
