Did You Know?

Randall Dale Adams and David Harris saw this movie at a Dallas drive-in on November 28, 1976 - it was the second of a double header preceded by "The Student Body." Both mentioned their attendance in alibis while being investigated for the murder of Officer Robert W. Wood - Adams also said that he had to leave this movie before it was finished, as he didn't feel comfortable with its content. Adams' eventual conviction was the subject of the movie "The Thin Blue Line."See more »

The Swinging Cheerleaders was a wonderful surprise of a drive-in movie type, 12 September 2014
Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.

Okay, this is my second cheerleader movie in a row I'm reviewing having previously commented on The Cheerleaders. In this one, Jo Johnson is Kate, an aspiring reporter who joins the college cheer team to expose them for their sexual hijinks but ends up finding out about a corrupt fix involving the football games. Ms. Johnson is quite a sexy brunette here surrounded by a blonde Colleen Camp as Mary Ann, another blonde Cheryl "Rainbeaux" Smith as Andrea, and a female of color Rosanne Katon as Lisa. Yes, there's some sex scenes with the requisite nudity and some funny lines and sequences but there's also some nice dramatic ones concerning much of the plot I mentioned. If I hadn't read the credits on Wikipedia and this site, I would have been fooled this was actually written by two women but it's actually two men as one of them is really director Jack Hill (as "Jane Witherspoon"!). Still, it sometimes felt like there was a feminist spin in some of the scenes and I liked the way the tone changed partly on a dime. So on that note, I recommend The Swinging Cheerleaders.
