All About Eve
4 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

This is one of Russ Meyer's early nudie cuties and it's about a handyman who is followed around by a sexy private detective. Along the way he has a series of encounters with busty blonde women. Eve Meyer plays the detective as well as all of the other women. I guess you could call this film charming. It hardly has any nudity at all and unfortunately none whatsoever from Eve Meyer. I would say that Eve is still the only reason to watch this though. She is a great looking woman and this film is all about her really. Like Meyer's other nudie cuties, this one has no synchronized dialogue, so it plays almost like a silent movie, and as such the humour is broad; mostly lame to tell you the truth but occasionally amusing. Generally speaking things waver when Eve is not on screen, which admittedly is not too often.

I personally think that RM only got into gear as a film-maker once he directed Lorna. These early movies are nice enough but they lack any real bite and they do not reflect Meyer's personality very well. Admittedly there is some nice photography on display here and Eve Meyer is definitely a typical RM woman, i.e. buxom and ballsy. Definitely worth watching for devotees of RM but far from essential.
