This film is notable for its involvement a United States Supreme Court case, Roaden v. Kentucky, 413 U.S. 496 (1973). At the conclusion of a showing at a drive-in theater in that state, a county sheriff arrested theater manager Harry Roaden for exhibiting obscene material in violation of state law, seizing several reels of the film as evidence. After Roaden's conviction, his lawyers appealed on the basis that the film's seizure without a warrant violated the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and thus the reels should not have been admissible as evidence. The U.S. Supreme Court ultimately agreed that a warrant should have been obtained, as no exigency forced the sheriff to immediately seize a film being exhibited at a commercial theater with regularly scheduled performances--circumstances that afforded ample opportunity to conduct proper judicial review and obtain a warrant.
Roaden's lawyers never seriously protested his conviction on the basis of the film's content, effectively conceding that the film met the standard for obscenity under Kentucky law. See more
