Mercy Rooney. Enough said.
27 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

When it comes to naming the sexiest women I've ever seen, one woman is always mentioned: Mercy Rooney a.k.a. Merci Montello. Mercy was the December 1972 Playboy Playmate but I will always remember her for her appearance on the cover of the March 1973 issue of Playboy where in a series of photos she completely undresses and ends the poses with her tossing her long blonde locks in the shape of the famous Playboy Bunny's ears. It was one of the most stimulating covers ever for any magazine. In her prime, she was perfection personified.

The film, which is pretty short at 65 minutes, is about a sexually active photographer named Steve who does nude photography for a living. He is able to bed women with his good looks and his prowess in the sack. He meets Sherrie (Montello) at a dance club and they have a relationship. However, one day on the beach he meets up with Erika (Erica Gavin) who is the woman of his dreams and has an affair with her and hoping that Sherrie doesn't find out.

That's pretty much the plot. In its short runtime there is a lot of nudity and "philisophical discussions". It's pretty much in the same ratio as today's hardcore porn when it comes to sex content. Not much in the way of acting except for the explicit, sexually suggestive dialog. The music is typical hip 1970's style stuff. The dance bar scenes are cool with the lights.

Of course, the women are very nice. Julie Stone, Steve's first conquest, is very nice. Erica Gavin looks facially like Salma Hayek but with a little more baby fat and has a superb figure. However, it is all about the pre-Playboy Merci, who looks incredible as expected.

This movie airs occasionally on Drive-in Classics in Canada so if you have that channel you should check it out to see Merci and the girls. Great eye candy.
