Ornithological Pornography
25 July 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Love God? finds Edmond O'Brien down, but not out as the publisher of a smut magazine where he features his wife Maureen Arthur in many issues. After yet another conviction for selling the pornography, O'Brien gets his fourth class mail permit lifted by the Postmaster General. What to do?

Inspiration hits him as he drives through the small town of Peacock Falls where one of the descendent's of the town founder, Don Knotts publishes a magazine for ornithologists that's about to go under. To get that permit, O'Brien agrees to bail Knotts out of debt and even sends him on a trip deep in the Amazon jungle to get a photograph of a rare tropical bird so he can make the necessary editorial changes.

A whole lot of good players get involved in this film in which choirmaster and scout leader Don Knotts from his small town is transformed into a Hugh Hefner clone by makeover genius Anne Francis. James Gregory has a marvelous part as a blustering civil liberties attorney, a man who looks like he's traveled the slippery slope often. B.S. Pully is also good as the gangster backer of O'Brien who hams it up outrageously. Of the whole cast Edmond O'Brien looked like he was really enjoying himself.

Poor Knotts plays his usual befuddled lugnut of a human being who can't quite grasp all that's swirling around him. Certainly he never thought of himself as The Love God?

I wasn't expecting all that much and I was pleasantly surprised that The Love God? turned out better than I thought. Catch it sometime, even if you're not a Don Knotts fan.
