(1974) from Tuna
|Naughty Stewardesses (1974) is a couples
soft-core/titty flick, but not a typical one. In this case, the plot
has little to do with their occupation, and does not directly concern
their love and lust. The four stews live together. Connie Hoffman is
the newest member of the crew, having just dropped out of college to
become a stewardess. Donna Desmond, Syndey Jordan, and Tracy King
round out the group. Mikel James appears in a gratuitous scene to up
the tit count. Of the group, only King (The Kentucky Fried Movie /
Tender Loving Care / Hospital of Terror) had much of a career.
Hoffman meets an older man on a flight, and ends up at his Palm
Springs home. She also meets a photographer/cab driver in San
Francisco, and ends up posing for him. Let me try to get through the
rest of this quickly. All of the girls meet the older man, and end up
at least topless with him. The photographer comes to LA to see Hoffman
again, and takes a job with King's boyfriend shooting porno. He
hatches a plot to get even with Hoffman and the older man by
kidnapping the girls, and holding them for ransom.
James: Breasts and buns in a gratuitous sex scene with the older
Hoffman: Breasts posing for the photographer, and again after
King: Breasts doing a strip dance at pool side.
Desmond: Breasts and buns in a scene involving the older man,
and a basket
Jordan: Breasts peeking out of a shower, and buns doing it
standing up on the plane with the co-pilot.
The film was shot in Santa Monica, San Francisco, Las
Vegas, and Palm Springs, which indicates more than a zero budget.
This was not what I hoped when I put it on. I expected
a light comedy with lots of sex, and ended up with an un-interesting
plot, terrible acting from all of the men in the cast, and lots of
late 60's, early 70's slang.
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
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
is a C-, and would be lower were it not for the amount of
the Movie House home page
