Fontaine Makes the Film
29 August 2018 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Teenage Tramp (1973)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Young and sexy Kim (Alisha Fontaine) is a runaway who finds herself hitchhiking with her boyfriend. After being sexually assaulted by a truck driver, Kim finds her way to house of her older sister HIlary (Robin Lane). Before long Kim is trying to seduce her boyfriend but things take a dark turn when someone from Kim's past comes back.

The title and poster for this film tries to pass it off as a sexploitation picture and while there's plenty of sex and nudity, there's also no question that the film is more drama than anything else. The picture certainly has its sleazy moments but it seems that the director was really wanting to do a character study of this young female character who falls in with the wrong people.

The main reason to watch this film is due to the performance of Fontaine. Looking through her IMDB credits you will see that she didn't have very long of a career and most people are probably going to remember her for a certain Burt Reynolds movie. With that being said, I thought she was quite good here as she managed to make you believe the character you're watching and there's no question that she perfectly nails the more sexual aspect of the film.

The film runs a very fast-paced 75-minutes and with such a short running time there's nothing wasted. There aren't any boring subplots or anything like that. There are countless sex scenes in the picture, a bunch of hippie stuff and you also get plenty of nudity, which helps sell the dirtier side of the film. The drama of the main character was handled well enough and there's no question that TEENAGE TRAMP is entertaining for what it is.
