Linda and Abilene (1969)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

After the death of their parents, brother and sister Todd (Kip Marsh) and Abilene (Sharon Matt) begin to have sexual feelings for one another. After about 39-minutes running time they two find themselves in bed, on the farm, in the creek and various other places as their sexual desires are finally fulfilled. The only problem is that Todd goes to town one day leaving his sister behind and when she's raped the big brother goes for revenge. Herschell Gordon Lewis directed this softcore Western and it's a pretty forgettable affair outside the subject matter, a rather hot lesbian scene and a bit of history it has. This film was shot on the Spahn Ranch right around the same time as all the Manson stuff so people might be interested in seeing what the ranch looked like back then. These locations actually give the film an authentic Western look, which is certainly one of the better things in the picture. As the title gives away, Abilene eventually finds more sex through a relationship with Linda and this sequence here is certainly the highlight of the picture. Performances are pretty much what you'd expect from a film like this but Matt is cute enough to help carry the film up to a point. It is rather funny to see her struggle trying to get out of all those old-fashioned dresses. There are a couple times where it appears she's having trouble getting them off! What really keeps this movie from being better is its incredibly slow pacing, which just keeps the film dragging on and on. At 93-minutes the film really could have been cut down by a good fifteen-minutes and especially since so much time is just leading up to the brother and sister finally getting it on.
