Trivia

The post-Science Fiction Convention orgy (in which Harlan Ellison briefly appears straddled on a chair by Jane Allyson and Lois Mitchell), as well as several other scenes, were shot at Ellison's home which is recognizable for its funky decor and the voluminous number of books lining its walls. As with most of producer Harry H. Novak's films, the trailer largely consists of alternate shots, so if you watch it you can see an even longer shot of Harlan (although his face is obscured in that shot by his hair). See more »

Goofs

During the original shoot they forgot to film Lois Mitchell getting undressed so they called her in for a re-shoot. As a result, her hair goes from straight to curly to straight again in one scene. See more »

Absolutely abyssal sleaze, but good for a few laughs
18 August 2008 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

I have a sneaking suspicion that "The Godson" was produced later than 1971 or that it was rushed into the works as a cash-in. This softcore tale of the mafia bears a title similar to another mob film which was released the following year. Still, those expecting an epic story on scale with the Corleone Family, well, you're in for a treat. This might be the most low-rent story of the mafia ever made. This mob consists of about five guys lounging around at the Holiday Inn (the cheapest shooting locating I imagine). The film is utter trash and abyssal sleaze, but its enjoyable for a few chuckles derived from the shoddiness of it all.

As camp, this is enjoyable enough, but as sexploitation, it unsurprisingly fails. There are a good amount of attractive women (including my favorite sexploitation film star of the period Uschi Digart), but the film is so goofy there's absolutely no erotic value. William Rotsler directs, but this is nowhere near as good as either "The Agony of Love" or "Mantis In Lace" (two of the finest drive-in exploitation films of the period). Still, if you're a fan of Something Weird's brand of trash, this may be an entertaining enough diversion. (5/10)
