Storyline

Sleazy but tame semi-comical soft porn set some time in the past follows a horny young man who applies to work as the gardener in the local school for female students. The students in this girlschool are very libidinous and like to frolic around topless all the time. They are more than glad that there's finally a vigorous young man there and he soon begins to service the school in more ways than one. The head mistress of the girlschool is an attractive man-hating tyrant who has a lesbian affair with one of her students. When the student in question becomes accidentally pregnant with the gardener's child, she can't bare the shame and hangs herself. The head mistress finds her, breaks down, caresses her dead body and swears vengeance against the gardener. She punishes the frolicking students and forces one of them to become her new lover. She tells her about horrible things that happened to her in her youth that made her hate all men and sends someone to try to take care of the gardener. Written by Anonymous

In questionable taste, but worth a look, I guess. . .
2 October 2011 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

A handsome lothario finds out that the gardener of a girl's school is retiring (a girl's school where are the "students" are all ridiculously over-aged, very voluptuous, and seem to spend all their time having topless picnics and slumber parties--begging the question of WHY in the world the original gardener wants to retire). Anyway, the lothario gets the job by pretending to be a mentally retarded deaf-mute (or something)and naturally he manages to seduce all these hot-to-trot girls, which leads him into a confrontation with the eponymous "head mistress" (60's sexploitation legend Marsha Jordan) who is using the school as her own personal lesbian seraglio.

This movie is mostly just a lot of straight sex scenes with the girls and the gardener alternating with lesbian scenes with the girls and the headmistress (and you can probably guess the ending), but it does veer into pretty questionable "roughie" territory in a couple places. The headmistress catches the prettiest girl having sex in a bathtub with the randy gardener and reacts by tying her up (naked, of course) and whipping her bloody. But the "blood" is obviously coming from the whip as Jordan is obviously hardly touching her fellow actress with it. No more believable but slightly more appalling is a scene where a girl becomes pregnant and decides to hang herself(topless, of course). The headmistress then comes upon the scene of the most downright demure, and completely ridiculous "hanging" in cinematic history and responds by--for no real reason other than to reveal the VERY questionable taste of the filmmakers--pulling down the hanged girl's panties. Wow, what a turn on! It makes you wonder who the hell used to watch these things.

Fortunately, these "roughie" scenes are almost impossible to take seriously. And the girls are all quite pretty and all quite natural (I personally will tolerate a little misogyny and bad taste if it spares me a lot of silicone). Marsha Jordan was not much of an actress, but she was always effective in these kind of roles. And this is currently paired up on a Something Weird disc with "The Notorious Daughter of Fanny Hill" featuring another 60's sexploitation legend Stacy Walker. Both are worth a look if you're interested in sexploitation fare of this era.
