Young Catherine Morelli (Julie Christie) who lives in Rome, goes to Geneva to find romance at her father's wedding. There she begins a near nymphomaniac pursuit of a mystery-fantasy man called Gregory (Michael Sarrazin).
A soft-core take on Romeo and Juliet is played out before a rowdy audience in this Novak produced sleaze-fest. A lot of the humor found within this film is of the "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-in" variety, that should be a good barometer of how much or how little enjoyment that you'll get from watching it. Granted interspersing ultra-corny jokes in between the sex scenes does get tedious after a short while, but the girls are all beautiful in that late '60's/ear;y '70's type of way and that alone is enough to carry the picture. While this movie will NEVER be considered a classic in any way shape or form, it's still one of Bethel Buckalew's better movies (not nearly as good as "the Pigkeeper's Daughter, but miles above Sassy Sue & Below the Belt)
My Grade: C
Something Weird DVD Extras: Commentary by Harry Novak and friends; 2 short features (Cleopatra's milk bath, and Cleopatra's asp); gallery of Harry Novak art; Theatrical trailer; and Trailers for "the Brazen women of Balzac", "A Clock Work Blue". "Fanny Hill", "the Nine Ages of Nakedness", & "Roman Love Triangle" (The Notorious Cleopatra is also on this double feature DVD)
Eye Candy: Deidre Nelson, Mickey Jines, Karen Thomas, Pat Davis, Vincene Wallace, Tiffany Lane, Elenor Rigby, Antoinette Maynerd, & Dorthea Christie all show much skin numerous times
