Right down the street...
29 June 2010 | by aldo-renato50See all my reviews

I saw this movie in the late 1970s as part of a double feature with "H.O.T.S"...thus, more T & A than one can shake a stick at! The movie was filmed mostly at the Roadium Swap Meet in Torrance, CA, not even a mile from where I grew up! The Roadium started in the 1950s as a drive-in theater but by the mid 1970s had abandoned movies in favor of being a full time "open air market." Weekend trips to the swap meet were a regular occurrence...it wasn't the nicest place on earth (not very clean, parking issues, dirty toilets, mediocre food, etc.) but one could always find a bargain!! About the movie...I saw it mainly because it was showing with "H.O.T.S" then I recognized the locations in the film (the review in the Los Angeles Times made no mention of that fact). I don't want to spoil anything but how the producers and actors got some of the scenes filmed within the property amazed me!! The film certainly earns its "R" rating (lots of nudity and sexual content; incidental violence). Cheryl Rixon had (according to the ads) been Penthouse Magazine's "Pet of the Year"...I can see why!! Several 1970s/1980s/1990s actors such as Ruth Cox (Nancy Drew, Happy Days, now a professor); Jon Gries (Martin, The Pretender); Debi Richter (Hill Street Blues); as well as Danny De Vito (Taxi, many movies) and his wife Rhea Perlman (Cheers, many TV shows and movies) in what were essentially cameo roles. This movie was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon (especially with a T & A classic such as "H.O.T.S.") and it would certainly be that on DVD. I give it a "seven" for the curio factor. The Roadium is still there after these years...I just hope they've taken care of the above problems...then maybe more movies will be made there!!!
