Goody-goody girl journalist Kelly Olsson (Ann-Margret Olsson) poses as a "swinger" to impress the horny stud editor of "Girl-lure" men's magazine (Tony Franciosa) to get him to publish her steaming sex story instead of her posing as his next nude centerfold. She spends the rest of the movie convincing the Girl-lure staff she is the girl in the story she has written about. Written by alfiehitchie

Ann Margaret, adored and adorable
16 January 2000 | by (NAS Ream Field) – See all my reviews

Delightful romp whose sole purpose is to showcase the body and talents of Ann Margaret. Very stylish production clashes wittily with a very dated story line. Ann Margaret is a demure fantasy, the accessible all-American girl, pretending to be a wild swinger so she can get published in a Playboy-type men's skin rag. This is one of the last movies directed by George Sidney who directed early titillations such as "Showboat" and "Ziegfield Follies." His obsession with Miss Margaret is apparent and she responds by letting it all hang out. From the opening credits, where she jumps on a trampoline in a cat suit, to zipping around her hip pad in sheer black pantyhose, her performance is frenetically sexy and out of control. She gets used as a paintbrush in a silly orgy and even does a strip-tease. The centerpiece of the movie, however, is the long photo montage sequence that dresses up Ann Margaret in every conceivable look from freckled school-girl to exotic femme fatale. For fans of Ann-Margaret this movie is a indulgent feast!
