Trivia

The actual first nudie musical is considered to be the 1963 nudie-cutie Goldilocks and the Three Bares (1963). See more »

Goofs

When Miss Jones [The Young Ingenue] is singing the opening female solo (following her audition), it's obvious that her voice is dubbed, as the audio is a second out of sync with her vocals. And the higher notes are not matching her mouth or jaw movements. See more »

A camp classic, way ahead of its time
2 July 2000 | by (Palm Desert, California) – See all my reviews

It was mentioned that this film was made for about 1% of the budget of New York, New York, and is about 100 times funnier. For 1975 and an R-rating, this film is a camp classic that was definitely ahead of its time. Having Cindy Williams, Diana Canova and even a cameo by Ron Howard makes for very funny moments in a story of a failing movie company resorting to make a porno musical to save the studio. The sets reflect the low budget of the film, but that in itself is part of its charm. Everyone involved gives it their all and the songs are quite clever. If only "Oh! Calcutta!" could have been this enjoyable.

I still hear of people searching for this film, as it is hard to find as its cult status grows. Better yet, try to find the soundtrack album--a must have for fans of this film.
