You could do a lot worse with 69(!) minutes of your time. Here is a tight little potboiler of 16 year old Marie and her sexual awakening. Of course you have to forget that the actress is well above that age. Just compare her to the actress playing her mother and you will note that there can't be more than a couple years between them. This has the stilted acting (?),stationary camera shots (it occasionally pans from left to right) and awkward scene endings (the actors freeze and wait for a camera dissolve) that good ol' H. G. Lewis is known for. If you are part of the raincoat crowd you won't be seeing much boobage and buttsteak but what is shown is attractive. There is a shot of "mom's" prat when her lover scoops her up in the dining room to carry her upstairs. I don't know how they snuck that one in. A curiosity of the late 1960's for sure but this isn't art!!
