The kind of film which would make an impression on an eleven-year-old
The first eighteen film I ever saw was Robocop. I thought. But Sexpionage (which is what this was called when I saw it) was a real eye opener for me in primary school. The premise is very similar to 'The Handmaids Tale' or 'Nikita'. But whereas that was a feminist pion, 'Secret Weapon' was very much on the side of titilation. Attractive woman is taught how to use her body for espionage.
This was the first time I saw Linda Hamilton (The Terminator some years off for me) all fuzzy hair and hurt look. I think it was a pretty awful film. I remember it being the talk of school the following day, although at that age, the main topic was probably whether anyone would want to go into the spy profession, and not the scene when all of the female students have to flash their breasts. Odd that.
