Film debut of Karen Black. NOTE: As Betty, a girl seen dancing at Luigi's and posing on a stool for The Beard. She is not seen frolicking nude in the quarry with other teen girls because, as told by executive producer David F. Friedman, her agent paid $2,500 to have that scene's negatives destroyed before the final cut. See more »
Really bad film about Jean Norton (JoAnn LeCompte), a teenage girl who wants to break free from her wimpy parents and become an adult. How does she do this? She starts off by sneaking out of the house and then it turns to meeting older men. Before long Jean is dealing with a photographer who (gasp) wants her to be in the nude.
THE PRIME TIME is a pretty bland and boring movie that for years was credited to Herschell Gordon Lewis. He wrote the screenplay and worked on the film but the director credited was Gordon Weisenborn. I'm not sure if Lewis eventually took over the shooting or what but there's no doubt that this is a pretty bad exploitation picture that really doesn't have too much going for it.
Thankfully the film only ran 72-minutes but even that seemed extremely long. The basic story dealing with the teenage girl really wasn't anything new since these type of warning pictures had been around since the 1930's. The added bonus here is that there are some scenes with girls skinny dipping and we get a lot of nudity. These scenes appear to have been shot at a separate time and edited into another picture. Perhaps Lewis shot these scenes? I'm not sure but the non-stop nudity during these scenes does make the picture stand out for something made in 1960.
LeCompte really isn't all that interesting as an actress and there's never a time where she makes you feel anything towards the character. It's worth noting that Karen Black has a small role here and according to producer David F. Friedman she did a bunch of nude scenes but her agent paid to have them taken out of the film!
