Produced by Paul von Shreiber [sic?], directed by John Howard, starring Jane Wald and Paul von Shreiber [sic?]. The bittersweet story of a shy, lonely sailor's weekend leave in Los Angeles, and the various people he encounters, particularly during the moonlight hours. WEEKEND PASS has been compared in sensitivity of acting and direction to the films of John Cassavetes; and in each case the films were produced by top Hollywood actors and technicians during their off hours, in an effort to make something spontaneous and meaningful that couldn't be produced under major studio conditions.
