Soft Core Starring Rock Hudson
24 November 2013 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Really oddball slice of movie-making. Writer Roddenberry apparently wants to say something derogatory about high-school and football, while director Vadim can't seem to train his camera on anything but a girl's groin area. The two threads occasionally cross paths, but not long enough to produce a coherent result. Rock Hudson, of all people, is a high-school coach who dabbles in serial killing, that is, when not testing girls out carnally in his office. Meanwhile, frustrated teenager Carson is having a terminal case of sexual arousal at all the wrong times. At the same time, a half-clad Angie Dickinson is trying to figure out just what her role is supposed to be, while bemused cop Telly Savalas stands by, practicing for his Kojak role.

The overall result is a sometimes interesting mess that, nevertheless, remains visually compelling for guys, at least. It's like soft-core porn with a Hollywood cast. I'm impressed, however, by how well Hudson performs as a tough talking womanizer and serial killer, not exactly the actor's stock and trade. Too bad Carson has only one frozen expression for every occasion, as another reviewer points out. Anyhow, if there's a point to the narrative buried somewhere inside the rampant lust, I couldn't find it. The movie is really more like an experience than a story told or a moral revealed.
