memories of a cheesy drive in

I remember when I was a boy, I could walk down to the foot of the road late at night, look up on the hill and see the giant drive in screen glowing with Cheri Caffaro's figure in another predicament. I never heard the dialogue, but who needs it in this movie series. Ginger's power was her sex appeal, and even though she might have been bound and gagged, her captors were the ones who were truly helpless against it. This movie would never be shown on any broadcast channels, not even USA, and that's too bad, it's a gem in the rough.

The acting was usually wooden and inconsistent, some of the editing was less than perfect, the sound has that studio resonance, the outfits were truly 70's, the music was eerily close to disco and the story line was old when the Romans dwelled the earth, but it's good B-movie fun.

The girls are pretty in their 70's way sporting the sexually open styles and high, high heel shoes. It is true to it's period in that respect.

I can just picture the screen lighting up with Ginger seducing one of her gullible captors to release her as she slowly sways against her bonds. Movies like this are best left to those of us who like our B-movie cinema.

Sure, in the era of political correctness and equality, it would get it's share of disdaining looks, but when you look back at the movie, especially some of the dancing scenes, you just have to laugh.and realize that even the Romans, the most civilized society, warranted a little debauchery in their own society, and that there was no harm, no foul on the big screen on a warm summer night.
