Pigkeeper's Daughter (1972) from Tuna

The Pigkeeper's Daughter is another Harry Novak dumb hillbilly film, with the usual amount of near hard core nudity and sex. As a matter of fact, it looks a whole lot like they were doing more than acting. Think of the entire film as a farmer's daughter and traveling salesman joke.


The nudity is from one-time-wonders, and an unknown, who probably could be found in hard core films if you knew their other names. The women are Patty Smith, Gina Paluzzi, Terry Gibson and an unknown hitchhiker. All four show everything, including some gyno shots, and possible penetration.

The nudity is great, and there are a few laughs. My favorite was the salesman meeting a man who had been robbed, stripped naked, had his hands tied to his ankles, and his car stolen. The salesman walks up behind him unzipping his pants, and says "This really isn't your lucky day."

This is another top notch Something Weird Video release, and is on the same DVD with Sassy Sue.

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDB readers say 5.4 of 10, but based on only eight votes
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 an excellent genre example, so C+.
