Merle reclaims her man
10 December 2012 | by wilvramSee all my reviews

A comical variation on one of the oldest themes of this genre, this opens with photos of a happily married Merle Michaels and Eric Edwards, but it's buxom Rikki O'Neal, supposedly Merle's best friend, whom Eric is plunging into. Poor Merle slips on a banana skin as she returns with the shopping and you know it's not going to be her day even before she catches the pair. Having walked out, she decides to win Eric back by expanding her sexual repertoire. She's recommended by her psychiatrist to CheeChee a sort of hippie sex therapist, played by the alluring Patty Boyd who might have become a star but for her penchant for using a different name in every film. First glimpsed memorably having sex wearing an enormous hat adorned with synthetic fruit and flowers and a long dark hairpiece, her extraordinary accent adds to an entertaining performance. After completing CheeChee's individual brand of therapy, including an impromptu performance with the two Rons Jeremy and Hudd in a porno theatre and CheeChee's girls' night out, which ends in group sex in her apartment strewn with phallic symbols, Merle has gained confidence and conclusively lost all her inhibitions, thus clearing the way to win Eric back in an amusing and erotic finale.

Perhaps only a 'classic' in the looser sense of the word, this is a fun little film from the Golden Age of sex cinema. The sex scenes are pretty hot, (albeit tame by today's standards), not least the one where Arcadia Lake, for some obscure reason, cooks dinner for Eric, ruins it, and he takes her without ceremony on the floor. Merle Michaels, star of many New York sex films around the turn of the 1980s is very cute and shares some funny repartee with Rikki as they fight over Eric. The cast look as if they were enjoying themselves making this one and I liked Patty Boyd in particular as the outrageous CheeChee. The identity of Norman Gurney remains a mystery, but settings and camera angles indicate that another Joe Sarno pseudonym is a good bet.
