Did You Know?


In her biography "Bittersweet" Susan Strasberg claims she got an urgent call from the director that her husband was acting a little rambunctious with the actresses they were testing. He bit the last one when he kissed her. He was balking at doing the love scenes. They asked her to play the part of the 18 year old girl who defies her father. She replied that she was too old and "did not want to be the oldest ingenue in Hollywood plus I'm 30 pounds overweight" She was told her face was still thin and she could diet. Encouraged by her her husband Christopher Jones who agreed she should lose weight and wanted the money,she accepted the role. See more »

Chubasco was quite a pretty entertaining obscure movie
14 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

After nearly 40 years of seeing the beginning of this movie which took place on a beach with the police arresting the leading man (Christopher Jones), I finally got to see most of this on a DVD that I borrowed from my local library. I said most because the disc I watched it on skipped some scenes at the beginning and in the middle taking place on an island with Ann Sothern as the bar owner. Susan Strasberg is Jones' girlfriend in the film and was married to him in real life at the time. They have a sweet chemistry throughout and Ms. Strasberg was perhaps at her most beautiful here (though the only other film of hers from this period I managed to watch was Psych-Out where she was also radiant there). Richard Egan was suitably aggressive as her father who isn't above punching some blows to Jones but eventually...well, watch the film if you want to know. So on that note, I say give Chubasco a look if you're curious enough.
