Chain Gang Women (1971) from Tuna

The title, Chain Gang Women (1971) is the stuff of classic exploitation fare, in that the film has no chain gang women at all. As a matter of fact, there are no women in the first half of the film. When I ordered it, I envisioned shower scenes, cat fights, lesbian encounters, and a male trustee getting lucky. 
Our two heroes escape from a chain gang. 

First, they head to the house of one of their girlfriends, Linda York.  Both have sex with her, and then they take off and invade a farmhouse, where they both have sex with Barbara Mills. Both women show 3Bs.

no widescreen, no features

The director uses a strange four-window screen during two chase scenes, where the content of the four is sometimes the same, and sometimes different views of the action. 

This is average exploitation fair, with two pretty, young naked women. 

The Critics Vote

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDb voters score it 3.5.
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a C. Average exploitation fare.
