Drive-in Special
18 February 2010 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

For an exploitation flick, the movie's not bad. No one expects Oscar bait from an outfit called Jewell Productions, but the performances are pretty good. Corday and Barker make a couple of believable hard cases, while Bostock's gamin hairstyle does a pretty good Natalie Wood circa 1958. Then too, Corday is one of those unsung actresses that enlivened many a B- movie of the day. But pity poor Ronald Green as the handsome box-boy. He appears completely lost in an undemanding part that nevertheless does have its compensations.

Okay, I watched because the title built up certain hormonal expectations, while the movie goes about as far as standards of the time would allow. The girls do a lot of dressing and undressing, and no one appears to own anything except tight, low-cut dresses, so the drive- in crowd of the time should have been pleased. But I especially liked Bostock's strange, slinky little dance that appears improvised but we get the idea anyway. I've got to admit the first five minutes surprised me. It's a clever variation on the heist theme so popular then. Also, there's maybe an early feminist message in the rather brutal violence that also surprised me, something about not trusting women who give massages. Anyway, it's a pretty good little flick of its kind, especially if you have a 12-pack on stand-by, which seems fitting for a drive-in special.
