If you mixed Barbarella & 9 1/2 weeks...
20 September 2002 | by (By the Bay, CA) – See all my reviews

Very cute and erotic movie made in 1969! ;-) I found it on Netflix and was intrigued. The movie has all the stylish glamour of the 60s with lots of sex!

Young widow uses dead husband's bachelor apt for sexual exploration. She sleeps around and ends up falling in love.

Lots of a nakedness and laughs! I'd recommend it!
