C.C. & Company (1970) from Tuna

C.C. & Company (1970) features Joe Namath opposite Ann-Margret in his first "starring" role.
Namath joined a motorcycle gang called The Heads, but gets a lot of static from the gang leader, who resents Namath's popularity and abilities, of which acting is not one.

Namath meets Margret, who is his acting equal, and enters a motocross race to impress her. He wins the race and her, but has some trouble getting out of the gang.


The good news? Dark shots of Ann-Margret's right nipple and most of her breast

Clear breasts from Jennifer Billingsley, probably best known for her two years on General Hospital.


DVD info from Amazon.

  • Widescreen anamorphic, 1.78:1

  • Not only was this not a good film, but it is an abysmal DVD. It is devoid of features, and seesm to be mastered from a second generation video tape. It is fuzzy, oversaturated and lacks contrast, yet is too dark in several scenes

Scoopy's comments:

The film was written by Margret's husband, former TV pretty boy, Roger Smith. Not surprisingly, he was never again able to sell his services as a writer. If I were going to write a script for my wife, I would include lines like:

CC: (played by somebody who has to look bad throwing a football) Hey, Crazy Charlie, stop rapin' that chick, man. By the way, Baltimore Colts rule, man!

This would at least minimize the likelihood of the director casting Joe Namath.

Seriously, they wanted Namath. This movie came out when Namath was still a young football star in his mid-twenties. He won his famous "guaranteed" superbowl victory over the Colts in 1969, and this film came out in 1970, an obvious attempt to capitalize on his emerging legend.

The Critics Vote

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDb voters score it 4.0
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.
