Trivia

Christopher Lee claims he had no idea this was softcore porn until he actually saw the movie. Various of his scenes were shot, and then edited in with the sex scenes later and during the opening sequence, he was unaware there was a nude woman on the altar behind him because drapery was swirled over her as soon as the camera stopped rolling and he'd turn around.

Better than you'd think
18 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Eugenie is a film that shocked 1969 audiences, with interracial kissing, woman-to-woman fondling, and brother-sister sex games. It is beautifully filmed, sublimely acted (within its cult pedigree), and has reams of coolness, which makes it a good bet for modern audiences. If you get bored watching Connery drive his Aston Martin to a romantic rendezvous for some witty repartee, Eugenie will likely bore you. If you prefer graphic to simulated, you might find it lame. But if you can buy into the characters and appreciate the care of the filmmaking, Eugenie is a rewarding, disturbing piece of celluloid. In the interview, Franco states "Of all my films, it is the one I hate the least." If you know Franco and his staggering body of work, that's saying something.
