Five Minutes to Love -- (1963) Rue McClanahan, Paul Leder, Will Gregory. What a find! McClanahan, one of TV's three Golden Girls (the sleazy one), plays a sleazy, young, incredibly good looking hussy named "Poochie, the girl from the shack". Rue's a knockout in this schlocker that may be her first film. 35mm.

Did You Know?

Sally 'Poochie':It only takes a minute. Five minutes, that's all. Did you ever look at a clock? That's all it takes, actual time. Five minutes maybe. Then what? It's all over. There no sign left, no mark. It's all done and past. Just two people, for five minutes.
Floyd:That's all it means to you?
Sally 'Poochie':That's all it is, the real of it. If you make it anything more than that, it's your own fault.

Promises Little, Delivers Less, 15 September 2000
Author: Steve Duff from Seattle, WA

Joe Bob Briggs mentioned how great Rue McLanahan (Golden Girls) looked in this early-'60s exploiter. Don't believe it! There's nothing much to see, no nudity or anything else that would make an exploiter interesting. The storyline and acting are horrible, as one might expect, and it's very, very boring. If you're curious about how the young Rue McLanahan looked, check out HOLLYWOOD AFTER DARK instead. It's no cinema classic, either, but at least it delivers.
