Another late 60's British time capsule
16 March 2010 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This is another late 60's British time capsule recently dug up and released on legitimate DVD. Some may prefer that it had stayed buried, but I thought it was OK. It is a portmanteau sex comedy featuring three stories--one that is mostly sex, one that is mostly comedy,and a third that is just plain weird. It is another collaboration between British exploitation filmmakers Stanley Long and Derek Ford. It's not as good as the pair's previous effort "Groupie Girl", but it's better than their debut film "Wife Swappers" (as well as pretty much any of Derek Ford's subsequent work).

The stories all involve working-class male slobs getting lucky as the result of a case of mistaken identity. The first story involves a lowly camera assistant (Dennis Waterman) who is seduced by a man-eating actress (Vonda Hudson) after the latter mistakes him for the teenage son of a producer she's trying to get a part from (normally actresses just sleep with the producer himself, but, oh well). The second story involves a pathetic slob who's about to commit suicide when a pretty girl (Vanessa Howard)and a bunch of her swinging friends (including Valerie Leon and Alexandra Bastedo) mistakenly show up at his apartment looking for a party, and think this particular party has a "suicide" theme. The last story has a taxi driver taking a sexy female fare (Yutte Stensgaarde) to a remote location, and after she stiffs him (in more ways than one), he follows her to a strange house (actually filmed in France!)where all kinds of indescribable weirdness is happening.

The voluptuous Vonda Hudson has about 90 percent of the nude scenes here, but she can't really act otherwise. Vanessa Howard, as always, is very cute and adorable--and genuinely talented as an actress--but her character is both underdeveloped and overdressed. Danish pastry Yutte Stensgaarde would become famous a couple years later for "Lust for a Vampire", but she doesn't have much of a role here (except she does swim topless with two girlfriends and lies naked on the floor covered in fruit in a scene that appears to be partly cut). Perhaps, the most memorable scene in the last story (and the whole movie) though might a VERY STRANGE striptease scene involving a woman whose body is covered only with "pasties" in the shape of black hands, which she slowly peels off and then puts them over a two-way mirror through which the poor protagonist is trying to watch her. The music, like with "Groupie Girl", is third-rate British Invasion stuff and consists of only two songs, but it's pretty good actually. I kind of liked this overall.
