3 A.M. (1975) from Tuna

3 A.M. (1975) is a hard-core from the golden age, featuring a then 39 year old Georgina Spelvin of Devil in Miss Jones fame. Somewhat lesser known Sharon Thorpe, and relatively unknown Claire Dia and one-time wonder Rhonda Gellard also have major roles.


It's a hardcore sex film. See the main commentary
Spelvin lives with her sister and family in a beach house. When her sister and her husband have a fight at 3 A.M. one morning after sex, Spelvin meets the husband on his boat for sex, as has happened many times before. This time, she tries to convince him to run away with her. He makes it clear that won't happen, so she knocks him over the side with a Champagne bottle, and he is never seen again. Spelvin has sex with a random female visitor, and with her niece, Gellard. Her nephew has sex with next door neighbor Thorpe, and Dia as Spelvin's sister has sex with her husband.
no DVD info from Amazon
As in many hard-core films from this era, the print is in terrible shape. Film preservation never hit the adult industry, and distribution of the DVD versions is not wide enough to justify spending a lot on remastering. This is one of the weaker plots from the golden era, but does have some sex scenes (with no money shots).

The People Vote ...

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, with a genre of golden age classic porn, this one is a C-.
