Christopher Jones is just great in this Sixties sex drama.
8 May 2003 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

James Dean lookalike Christopher Jones ('Wild In The Streets') plays college boy stud Paxton Quigley who finds his life is turned around when he meets the beautiful and intelligent Tobey Clinton ('The Time Machine's Yvette Mimeux). Paxton is so smitten with her he gives monogamy a try for the first time, and everything looks fantastic. But he finds himself irresistibly drawn to vivacious newcomer Eulice (Judy Pace) and begins an affair with her. Soon after he does the same with hippie chick Jan (Maggie Thrett), and juggles all three girls, egged on by his best buddy Jake (John Beck). However, Tobey discovers the truth and convinces the other two girls to help her imprison Paxton in the attic of their dorm. The three girls then proceed to punish him by screwing him to death! 'Three In The Attic' was probably quite risque when it was released in the late 1960s, and while it was most likely just intended as a "naughty" exploitation movie, it actually holds up very well as an interesting drama about men, women and sex. Christopher Jones is just great throughout, and watching it you can't help but be a bit saddened thinking how this talented and charismatic actor's career came to a standstill after he appeared in 'Ryan's Daughter' only two years after 'Three In The Attic'. This is a very interesting and entertaining movie if you can manage to see it.
