A VERY 70's flick
20 April 2010 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

Your enjoyment of this will no doubt depend on how much you like 70's movies--this movie is VERY 70's. The "plot" (like you really need one in a 70's flick) involves a sexually inexperienced college co-ed "Gabriella" (Barbara Caron), whose three far more experienced girlfriends (Marki Bey, Sondra Currie) decide to help her get more experience by each setting her up with a guy--a photographer, a virginal male roommate, and an older married guy with a sympathetic wife. But which of these suitors will she have sex with?. . OK, the answer is all three--this was the 70's after all (and that is NOT a spoiler).

This "plot" though only takes up maybe half of the 80 minute run-time, but the movie is padded out with long stretches of goofy counter-cultural dialogue, fantasy sequences (like a mouth-watering Garden of Eden sequence with Caron playing the mother of all humanity), and flashbacks--lots and lots of gratuitous flashbacks. There is even a flashback within a flashback where a gay guy tells of being seduced by his PE coach (a highly unusual scene in a 70's movie). The best flashback though is when the heroine flashes back to her father(!) cruising the Sunset Strip looking for "young stuff". This is a VERY weird scene (what was she following him?), but you do get to see some great, sleazy footage of Sunset Boulevard circa 1972. I live for such things.

The co-director of this Arthur Marks went on to do films like "Bonnie's Kids" and the blaxploitation flick "Detroit 9000". Lead actress Caron is--how can I say this--absolutely, unbelievably, frickin beautiful, and she spends the whole movie modeling skimpy bikinis, groovy 70's duds, or her even groovier birthday suit. Marki Bay plays the liberated black chick and gives by far the best acting performance. Then there's "Sandra Currie" (actually SONDRA Currie), who looked like a bustier version of Claudia Jennings, and was the older sister of Cherie and Marie Currie of the Runaways fame. I personally remember her best though as the evil stewardess in the airplane episode of the old "Incredible Hulk" TV show. (That's one reason I love 70's exploitation flicks--you can see a lot of the same actresses you on saw on TV as a kid, but in a much sleazier setting). This is actually a pretty tame movie as far as 70's exploitation goes though, and it goes off on so many unrelated tangents that it's more like a series of unrelated tangents than a movie. But if you like 70's movies, you might kinda like it.
