Storyline

On the Las Vegas strip, two unlikely men rendezvous: Samuel Hill, an ill-kempt desert miner, and Benjamin Jabowski, a John Birch Society dandy from the city. Intent on some sort of mayhem, they enter the Herald Club before the burlesque show starts, and they wire something to the electrical box, set to blow at midnight. They sit at the back of the club to get to know each other. As they drink and glance at the stage, Sam tells of a partner driven mad by visions of naked women in the sagebrush; Ben tells a tale of trying to rid his neighborhood of a pin-up studio. As they get drunker and the clock ticks toward midnight, they pull their chairs closer to the women on stage. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

THE FILM DEBUT THE "RESPECTABLE" DIRECTOR WANT US TO IGNORE!!
28 September 1999 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Yes, it's true, Coppola made "Nudie Cutie" before "Dementia 13"! It's no worse or better than other skinflicks of the late 50's/early 60's but it's certainly ain't no "Immoral Mr. Teas" or "Kiss Me Quick". This western angle is interesting cuz Russ Meyer made "Wild Girls Of The Naked West" the same year! B-movie god, Jack Hill ("Spider Baby", "Big Doll House", "Coffy" etc.), helped Francis with this one. Ah, nothing is funnier than diggin' up major directors' "well buried" skeletons. He shouldn't be ashamed, though, cuz at least it's better than the pathetic "Jack"!!
