Quotes

Narrator: The guitar as we know it today, came about as a result of many types of earlier stringed instruments. There was first the harp, the lute, then the zither, and mandolin. The guitar is a very sensitive instrument, with "G" being the third string, and is played over a system of frets. Sensitive men have been fretting over G-strings for years!

"Sensitive Men Have Been Fretting Over G-strings For Years!" A Good Way To Spend An Hour.
7 July 2019 | by J_Batek_IISee all my reviews

This film is the first non-pornographic movie to feature gratuitous nudity with intended normal theater distribution. Before 'The Immoral Mr. Teas' (1959), the only way to film nudity was to create a 'nature documentary' or to be labeled 'pornographic' (which prevented distribution and was illegal in most places). For 'Mr. Teas', Russ Meyer softened both the nature and the pornographic aspects, combined them, and made a film that was approved for regular theater distribution. If you have ever enjoyed a sex scene in a film, or seeing your favorite actress or actor naked, then you owe a debt of gratitude to Russ Meyer and the creation of this film.

There is no sound track or dialog, so the narrator reads from an encyclopedia and makes bad puns over bad music. This isn't a perfect film, but it's fun for an hour and the ladies are beautiful. For the first 30 minutes, there really isn't any nudity, and I was starting to get irritated. The narrator began discussing the 'frustrations' that can occur from such things, and I began to understand the point of the movie. Don't let the silliness fool you - this is a smart film.

So, don't come in expecting 'Saving Private Ryan' (1998), and you will have a good time. Great for date night with 'the right girl'... wink, wink...

RealReview Posting Scoring Criteria: Acting - 0.5/1 (There really isn't much acting); Casting - 1/1; Directing - 1/1; Story - 1/1; Writing/Screenplay - 0/1 (There is no dialog.);

Total Base Score = 3.5

Modifiers (+ or -): Music Score/Soundtrack: -0.5 (it's funny narration, but it's irritating without a sound track);

Gratuitous Female Nudity: +1 (This is the O.G. of female nudity...);

Cultural Significance: +1 (Pioneer of nudity in film);

Total RealReview Rating: 5
