Vague Memories On "Young Lust"
26 June 2018 | by whomanjimperrySee all my reviews

Apparently this film was supposed to be Paramount Pictures "next big comedy hit" of 1982. But it wasn't to be..... Early that year (I believe it was that Feb.), the studio showed a test screening here in Las Vegas, Nev. (the screening was shown one evening at Mann's Boulevard Twin - the screening was shown with "Raiders Of The Lost Ark".) I went to that screening, but have very vague memories on what it was about, other than: (1.) It was a comedy. (2.) The print shown was "a rough cut" - no credits were shown at the beginning, and after the last scene, the house lights came on and Paramount's people (representatives) started handing out cards & pencils . They then asked us patrons to fill out the cards & write down what we thought of the film. My reaction: I thought the film was "a hell of alot funnier than Airplane." (It was - I hated that film. The guys who made "Airplane" - their previous film, "The Kentucky Fried Movie" had more humor, whereas "Airplaine" was just a dumb & stupid, unfunny spoof on disaster movies.) (3.) I have no recollection of either Fran Drescher, Mary Woronov, or Dey Young being in this. However, I do remember Lyman Ward - if you don't know who he is, several years later he would play Matthew Broderick's "dad" in "Ferris Buller's Day Off". (Apparently, "Young Lust" was a "reunion film" for Mary & Dey - they both were in "Rock 'N Roll High School" with the Ramones - Mary played the EVIL "Mrs. Togar" & Dey played Riff Randall's best friend.)

Apparently, I must've been the only one who found "Young Lust" entertaining, as Paramount thought this test screening to be "a disaster" - they never released it. According to IMDb.com (this site), the Robert Stigwood Organization (or RSO), released this film 2 years later - this site has the date as April 27, 1984. My guess is that this was done somewhere in some major city to "capitalize" on Fran Drescher's "popularity". She wasn't "a big name" at this time. However, about a few weeks before, "This Is Spinal Tap" came out, where Drescher plays the annoying by funny "Bobbi Flekman" ("Bobbi" was the one who also complained that Tap's new album & album cover, "Smell The Glove", was "too offensive".) As for "Young Lust", had Paramount released it back in, say the summer of 1982, it may have played in theatres for about 2 weeks - maybe 3 - then it would've vanished........
