Harvey and Herschell: A Team That Can Be Beat
18 May 2009 | by (Detroit, Michigan) – See all my reviews

I have to admit, this review is based on the 36 minute clip (about half) of "Living Venus" now showing in the Something Weird section of Comcast / On Demand. I can't give you the presumably missing juicy details, but what I can tell you is that it's not too bad; acting is decent and the story is OK. This is a curio I wanted to see as much for Harvey Corman (his first film) as for H. G. Lewis (pre-gornography). Kerwin stars as a magazine editor a la Hugh Hefner who launches a monthly stag rag called "Pagan". He discovers "living Venus" D'Hondt in a restaurant and recruits Korman to snap the cheesecake photos. They both pursue D'Hondt, but Kerwin succeeds, and he quickly pimps D'Hondt out to enlist advertisers. Ending is predictable. Korman worked better with Tim Conway.
