Storyline

Eve is dressed in a long raincoat and follows the handyman around as he makes his appointed rounds. She watches as he has humorous run-ins while cleaning toilets, taking scrap metal to the dump, cleaning windows, delivering a tree, climbing poles, and remaining a gentleman while trying to help a topless hitchhiker. But why is she watching him so carefully? Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

identity of the handyman
13 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The handyman is played by William Burroughs, the writer, right? It certainly looks like him.

Is this the first movie which featured a completely nude (from behind) shot of a woman walking (in the laundromat scene)? Considering that Eve was Russ Meyer's wife, why does she not bear her breasts? Is it because the film would have been banned at the time? Is the reason why bare breasts are only shown in the artist's model scene (and for one minute if that) also due to censorship laws? Did he get away with it only because it could be justified by the censors as a depiction of artists at work?

Does anyone else find the repetitive music really annoying and think it completely ruins the movie?

Tragic that Eve Meyer died in the world's worst ever plane disaster when two planes crashed head-on on the runway in Tenerife in 1977. Does anyone know why she divorced from Russ Meyer? Surely he wasn't unfaithful. She looks like quite a well-constructed lady and seemed smart too.
