Typical of many films of the 70s, it contained a requisite scene of nudity regarding a determined Sueleen Gay Gwen Welles , a dim-witted, red-haired, tone-deaf, lower-class waitress who aspired to be a singer.
She embarrassingly performed "about a girl who never gets enough" and a second song titled "When I Love You" before an all-male political, fund-raising smoker. She was encouraged to strip by the misogynistic crowd. Her bump-and-grind striptease, a clumsy, inept, asexual un-dressing in front of the crowd, included removing the padding from her bra and tossing it into the hooting group of spectators before going topless. Thoroughly humiliated by the show's end, she had stripped off her dress, bra, and yellow panties also tossed to a cheering male before running off.
A missing persons crime case brought Moseby to the Florida Keys, where he encountered free-spirited, promiscuous runaway teenager Delly Grastner up-and-coming star 18 year-old Melanie Griffith in her film debut - the step-daughter of wasted ex-actress and sexually-liberated studio boss divorcee Arlene Iverson Janet Ward. Griffith's notable breakthrough role called for her to appear naked twice, including a mid-night swim scene.
During her dive from a glass-bottom boat, she discovered a crashed plane with the remains of stunt pilot Marv Ellman Anthony Costello - later revealed to have been killed by suspicious mechanic Quentin James Woods.
The film was not to be confused with the morally-questionable, controversial and clumsily-made teen fantasy sex comedy Private Lessons with Sylvia Kristel of Emmanuelle fame. Carroll Baker is the perfect teacher!
His self-assured latent homosexual friend Gabrielle spied upon Laura while she pleasured herself, and took pictures which he used for blackmail purposes. Next to her naked body as he lit three matches, one after the other, he held each match close to her left breast, then her "ass" and then her pubic area, while Gabrielle told Alessandro about the illuminated areas: The second match is for her back bumper or ass, not bad is it? The way it wiggles under her clothes to magnetize all your attention.
And the third match is to show you only what you've imagined. It represents the essence of everything you have desired, and the magic bush that draws you to its entrance. You think it's love, platonic or otherwise, a grand passion that makes you throb.
And what do you think it is? It's flesh, and nothing else. He confessed his love to her, and she assured him: Oh baby, how lovely, I want you. Oh, it's good, so very good. Gently, yes, oh you see, you're wonderful. They laid together naked after having sex in a small clearing, and she mentioned how he was now confident - no longer awkward and unsure of himself like a little boy, as the film ended.
Lee Thompson has always been heavily edited for its mids style nudity and controversial content "incest" thematic elements. The screenplay by Max Ehrlich was from his novel of the same name. It featured a tagline that almost gave away the entire plot: Suppose you knew who you had been in your previous life.
Where you had lived, whom you had loved, and how you had died. The contrived story was about inquisitive young California college professor Peter Proud Michael Sarrazin who had disturbing, prophetic nightmares or visions during dream-sleep.
The film opened, under the title and credits, during a night-time scene. An unidentified nude lake swimmer came upon a woman in a motorboat. The man apologized for previous drunken and abusive behavior: I didn't mean what I said back there. And I'm sorry, baby, I mean it Look, I was drunk. I didn't know what I was saying, what I was doing. I love you, Marcia, I always have. Peter's sexy girlfriend Nora Hayes Cornelia Sharpe described his voice: Peter began to believe he was the incarnation of an adulterous, ex-decorated Marine war-hero named Jeffrey Curtis Tony Stephano who was found dead after a nude night-time swim on Crystal Lake near the Puritan Hotel replaced by the Crystal Lodge , after leaving his clothes in the Curtis lakeside cottage.
It was a well-known death case in the city - Jeff Curtis died on September 27th, , and it was considered an accidental drowning. He was first reported as missing by wife Marcia Buckley Curtis Margot Kidder, pre-Superman who had a 3 month-old infant daughter.
Although married to Marcia the daughter of a wealthy bank president , Jeff was having an affair with another young female. His reputation was that he was a womanizing playboy - a charming "no-good son-of-a-bitch. But soon, Nora became frustrated with him and left: Marcia gradually figured out or believed, based on Peter's mannerisms, voice and similarities to her deceased husband once she witnessed how Peter took on the voice of the dead husband that ex-husband Jeff Curtis had come back.
She was disturbed to think that Peter Proud was the reincarnation of her deceased husband - and he had semi-incestuously fallen in love with his own 'daughter. She accused him of having multiple affairs - even while she was giving birth to Ann: You made love to them in our bed when I was having Ann in the hospital.
I'm gonna screw you. Why did you do this to me? I can't stand the sight of you. Then, Marcia confronted Peter face to face in his hotel room - she accused him of vengefully coming back to haunt her and confront her with the murder 30 years earlier.
In the sudden conclusion to the film, Peter was swimming in the lake, when the deranged Marcia emerged from the fog in a small motorboat, believing that he was the reincarnated Jeff. Why did you come back? You shouldn't have come back to torment me.
When she turned the gun toward herself, Peter begged her not to hurt herself. He swam toward her to grab the gun, but it went off.
He was killed - and his body slowly sank to the bottom of the lake. Marcia had re-enacted the night of her husband's death 30 years earlier!
The last image was a zoom-in and freeze-frame on the face of Peter, submerged under the water, as the credits rolled. Upon its initial test showings, it bombed and was shelved. It didn't really take off as a phenomenon until it was featured as a 'midnight movie' at Greenwich Village's Waverly Theater on April 1, It was a mixed genre film science-fiction, comedy, musical, and horror , but mostly a parody of B-horror movies of the s.
It was a groundbreaking film for its themes of transvestism, homosexuality, bisexuality, cannibalism, voyeurism, adultery, and incest. The film also popularized and promoted alternative sexuality, cross-dressing, promiscuity, and rebellious behavior.
Its main character was the sexually-obsessed, outlandish and openly-bisexual transvestite Dr. The other two main characters were a strait-laced, All-American newlywed couple who stumbled upon his castle: Furter's androgynous sexuality was exemplified by the outrageous and suggestive dual seduction scenes of the two separated honeymooners. In a lighted tent, there were two seductions: Frank also re-animated a Frankenstein-esque human - an attractive new muscle-bound, blonde beefcake playmate sex toy named Rocky Peter Hinwood.
I've got an itch to scratch. Touch-a touch-a touch-a touch me. I wanna be dirty. Thrill me, chill me, fulfill me, creature of the night. All of the characters were now decadent - costumed in stiletto high-heels, fishnet stockings, boas and tight black corsets on stage, performing in a cabaret show. Then, all of them dove into a swimming pool, a la Busby Berkeley style, singing and making love to each other: Swim the warm waters of sins of the flesh.
Erotic nightmares beyond any measure These perverted acts were committed upon a group of about 30 young peasant teenagers both male and female by four ruling WW2 Fascists in the short-lived, lakeside republic of Salo in Northern Italy over a few days.
Salo began with degradation -- the male and female youths who were seized in the town were stripped and inspected "A delicious little ass. Never seen one firmer. A pair of little breasts, to revive a dying man" and then driven to a secluded chateau near Marzabotto, where they were instructed that every day would include these acts: Its four chapters clearly delineated the reason for the aroused outrage: The young people were told that they were "beyond the reach of any legality.
Breakfast in the dining hall was served by naked girls - one of whom was tripped and raped from behind, after which another male was penetrated anally. Soon after, the entire group engaged in a mock "wedding feast. The two were first encouraged to fondle each other and show their affection, but denied consummation, and then were anally raped by the libertines and in addition, there was an instance of three-way intercourse from behind.
The Mock "Wedding Feast" One hapless blonde girl, Renata was forced to eat fresh human excrement with a spoon in the chapter titled "Circle of Shit" a segment obsessed with anal bodily functions when she was urged on by a man after he had freshly defecated on the floor: In another notorious scene, the youths were stripped, collared, leashed, and forced to act like dogs begging for pieces of meat one girl bit into a piece of food laced with nails. As punishment for breaking the rules, male youth Ezio was executed, along with his black maid partner, for illegally making normal love together.
Bound by their wrists and sitting in a tub of excrement, one girl cried out:
