The Nurse in the Military Madhouse (1979)

Let's have a look at an Italian sex comedy starring the gorgeous Nadia Cassini.  This genre reliably delivers the goods in terms of gratuitous T&A and inane silliness. So, as long as horny hi-jinx is your only expectation, you might actually have a good time with this one.  Let's have a look...

Secrets of a Door to Door Salesman (1973)

I was curious what the director of Village of the Damned (1960), Wolf Rilla, could do with a UK sexploitation romp in the vein of Benny Hill and Confessions of a Window Cleaner (1974).  Would he add a certain sinister element to the risque nonsense?  As it turns out, not at all.  But I still enjoy the genre, and am happy to take in as many 1970s Britsploitation comedies as I can get.  Let's have a look...

Cindy and Donna (1970)

I thought I'd give this film a try since it's part of sexploitation history.  In 1973 a Kentucky drive-in was taken to court on obscenity charges and the owner thrown in jail.  Thankfully, the drive-in owner was acquitted, but it marked yet another try by the government to shut down the smut that was filling theaters and drive-ins across the country.

Cindy and Donna is by no means porn; but compared to what was showing just a few years prior, I'm sure it seemed quite sleazy to rural audiences.  Let's have a look and see what got the Kentucky law enforcement's panties in a wad back in '73, shall we?

The Silencers (1966)

The Silencers is my absolute favorite among the wonderfully cheesy Matt Helm films.  If you're not familiar - these are James Bond clones, but with all the seriousness removed, with total cornball awesomeness in its place.

The Nude Bomb (1980)

What can you say about an unfunny movie called "The Nude Bomb" featuring actresses Sylvia Krystel and Pamela Hensley... which contains zero nudity? Well, "utter and complete disappointment" comes to mind.

The Nude Bomb is a Get Smart movie, with all of the Get Smart humor extracted and removed.  Imagine if The Naked Gun wasn't funny - if every single rapid fire gag fell completely flat - that would be the Nude Bomb.
