Fantastic seventies flick!
25 August 2008 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

Nashville Girl falls somewhere between an exploitation flick and a drama, but I'm not surprised that this is often considered an exploitation classic; as there are more than enough exploitative elements and the drama itself is interesting also. The film takes place in the Deep South and primarily focuses on the country music industry, although lots of other things come into play too. The main reason this film is so good is because of the way the narrative works; so many things happen in this film and it really doesn't become boring even for a minute, which is definitely much to its credit. The main character is Jamie Barker; a young country girl living in a no good town. She's out skinny dipping one day and attracts some unwanted attention from a no good hick type who proceeds to go ahead and rape her. The young girl is upset and confused and after an argument with her parents, decides to go to Nashville in order to find fame and fortune. So she sets off hitch hiking and gets a lift with two truckers before eventually reaching Nashville and finding that the way to the top is not always paved with gold.

Monica Gayle takes the lead role and does excellently with it. She really convinces as the naive young girl at the film's centre and her likable persona is a real credit to the film. There's really nothing wrong with her performance and I'm surprised the actress didn't go on to make more films. Gus Trikonis (who would go on to direct the low budget horror The Evil a couple of years later) directs this film well; creating just enough of a sleazy atmosphere to please exploitation fans. The way that Nashville is portrayed is gritty and sleazy and while there's not much actual sleaze in the film, the atmosphere is a benefit to it. I can't say I'm a fan of this sort of music; but the songs featured are catchy enough and well sang. I don't know if Monica Gayle did her own singing; I'd like to think so, but she probably didn't. Anyway, this film is engrossing for its entire ninety minute runtime and it all boils down to a satisfying conclusion. Overall, Nashville Girl is an excellent little film that could do to be better known. Fans of seventies thrillers will want to check this little flick out!
