Trivia

When this film was screened at Cinema 2000 (a video theatre set up to skirt Ontario Censor Board regulations, which were restricted to movies to projected on film) in 1971, Toronto police raided the premises and charged that the movie was obscene. Charges were subsequently dropped and the movie continued to play at Cinema 2000. However, when the movie was submitted to the Ontario Censor Board, so that it could play regular movie houses, the board insisted that all full frontal female nudity had to be removed before the film would be approved. Distributor Marden Films complied with the order. See more »

let's just call it an acquired taste
18 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

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
