This one ought to remain the vault
5 March 2009 | by junk_boxSee all my reviews

A totally ridiculous nudie cutie from the early days of the LBJ administration, this film would have been a justifiable view when its rival for prurience was the gingham dresses of the ladies of "Petticoat Junction." Such were the times that a film like this, consisting basically of women just standing there and letting their boobs hang out, found an eager audience.

The plot and structure of the film, such as they are, have been explained well by the other comments added by various users, and little more needs to be said about it.

It has a view moments of kitsch appeal, mostly in the footage of long-gone Manhattan, but if you are older than fifteen this film is a complete bore.
