Proof that Roger Corman would produce anything to make a buck
15 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If there was ever any proof that Roger Corman's New World Pictures would produce anything to make a buck, Night Call Nurses is it. Although, how this made money is beyond my comprehension (it is common knowledge that Corman never lost money with any films he produced). But then again, I assume this would have been predominantly show at drive-ins, and how many spectators would actually be watching the film? Anyway, the film begins with a topless girl jumping from the roof of a hospital, and then is never mentioned again, as we are introduced to our trio of "sexy" psychiatric nurses, Barbara (Patty Byrne), Janis (Alana Stewart), and Sandra (Mittie Lawrence).

The film is simply a series of non-sequential, rambling, unconnected stories (and story is too strong a word for the concept). We see a cowboy-style trucker, Kit (Dennis Dugan), who comes in cause he is tripping, starring at his hands (this scene is repeated later, as he enters a lighting fantasy in a truck cab, as he stars at his mirrored hands). Bathrode Benny (Martin Ashe) exposes himself at regular intervals, and the nurses break several doctor/patient restrictions by have relationships with patients (Janis with the tripping trucker, and Sandra with a black revolutionary that wasn't pleasant when they first met).

Barbara however, bizarrely gets therapy, but is then forced into psychosis, which manifests itself in a group meeting, where a bunch of clichéd hippie-types sitting round a living room, as the male doctor encourages the women in the group to take their clothes off, in a bid to shake off any lack of confidence - it's this side of the sexual revolution that is rarely talked about, the lecherous side of men. There are also a series of car chases, explosions and smuggling out a revolutionary, but it's all just very silly and pointless. Kit does however, have one great (but very silly) piece of dialogue. Being seen out of the hospital by Janis, he reads her name badge: "Janis. Is that your name, or the name of your left titty?" Yeah, it's juvenile, but within the context of this pointless drama, it is a joy amongst the nonsense.
