A Must See for Fans of Rene Bond

Frankie and Johnnie... Were Lovers (1973)

*** (out of 4)

Frankie (Rene Bond) is a singing star while her boyfriend Johnnie (Ric Lutze) still struggles trying to find his calling in life. The two have fun together and enjoy their sex life but Johnnie makes the mistake of messing around with her best friend Alice after a threesome.

FRANKIE AND JOHNNIE... WERE LOVERS isn't a masterpiece and it's certainly not an Oscar-worthy picture but at the same time if you're a fan of Rene Bond then it's a must see picture. The actress was in various softcore movies before making the move to hardcore pictures where she also got breast implants. This picture here is softcore all the way but it's interesting to note that Bond made it during her hardcore era.

Not only does the film give people a chance to see her new body without the hardcore footage but it also gives us various sides to the actress that I hadn't previously seen. The movie starts off with Bond singing a song and she actually does a nice job with it. The rest of the film she plays different things from anger to rage to pain and various other emotions and for the most part she did a good job. Lutze wasn't much of an actor but he too was at least fun and there's no doubt that the leads shared some nice chemistry.

At just 74 minutes the film drags at certain times and there's no question that there's not too much of an actual story here. Still, this is certainly a nice little gem that fans of Bond will enjoy. She beautiful body is on full display but all the added benefits make this a must for her fans.
