Review: An obscure and low budget item, which mixes the two genres of the sex comedy film and the drama to interesting effect. Although the ever-so tiny budget is clear from the very beginning and there are many “rough edges” in the movie, there are plenty of twists in the story (which goes in some unexpected directions) and some good performances from cast members. Some bad too, but I’ll gloss over those as all low budget movies are stuck with them. Being a ’70s movie, there’s a fair amount of sex and violence on display but nothing too offensive. Taking the lead role is former Russ Meyer regular Edy Williams as the voluptuous (it really goes without saying that she frequently sheds her inhibitions – as well as clothing) Dr Evans, who strikes up a relationship with the schoolboy David Brown, played as a nice-but-dumb character by Harvey Jason. Complicating the plot are the hilarious Randy Boone as Brian Thomas, a friend of David’s who also happens to be an amateur detective, Columbo-style. ’70s regular William Smith also appears as Gus, a former lover of Williams, who is determined to get half her fortune by fair means or foul. Although the film is quite slow moving throughout, it picks up for the final half an hour with lots of shenanigans involving a corpse and a minor Bonnie and Clyde element to the storyline. The music isn’t too intrusive and the film seems to bring out the best of the performers, even if the everyday locations used in the film are plain and drab. Very hard to come by these days, this is best viewed as an interesting obscurity piece which exemplifies the type of low-budget productions made during the mid ’70s in America, and is surprisingly deep when on first account it looks like nothing more than a nudie picture.
