Trouble starts when Jim gets home early from work because it's their anniversary. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

User Reviews

 
The story borders on melodrama and many of the plot points are too convenient to be taken seriously...

With "The Immoral Mr. Teas," Russ Meyer was one of the pioneers of sex films... He knew, however, that the region would eventually want more than just naked ladies winning easily around the countryside, and went for a strong plot that contained a well-motivated but heavy sex scene…

Lorna is a frustrated housewife… She lives in a wasted riverside shack with a deadbeat but sweet husband… He works hard all day and studies all night, leaving her unfulfilled...

One day, while the husband is at work, an escaped convict bursts in on Lorna and rapes her… She is so enraptured by the experience that she becomes infatuated with him, but when her husband unexpectedly returns from work, she doesn't know what to do…

"Lorna" was one of the first films to show nudity in the context of strong sex... While there was nothing really explicit or graphic about it, it was truly shocking for its-time… Today, however, it is quite mild and dull...
