A colleague's friend had vague recollections of a movie, which may or may
not feature Peter Fonda, and my colleague wants to find out the film's
title.  Read the description below, and please post if this looks familiar
to you.  Thanks, Allan

>I don't remember the name of the movie ... but I do remember that one of
>the main actors was Peter Fonda. I do remember the plot clearly. It was,
>more or less, about a group of brilliant Harvard students who raped a
>girl. She accused them in court and they countered that she was a
>prostitute. Their lawyer defends them by citing their brilliant grades and
>good families. They are acquitted. The girl commits suicide. As adults,
>the "juniors" look for "stronger emotions" and they dedicate themselves to
>"huntig" couples on weekend vacations. Th "hut" is not figurative;
>after the obligatory rape, the "juniors" set the couple free in the
>country, and then hunt them down with shotguns.
