USA 1981

 

Suspecting that Buck Thomas (Michael Morrison, TABOO) - the owner of the Circle S swingers ranch - is plotting to kill his wife Cora (Lisa De Leeuw, BLOW-OFF!) for insurance money, private detective Nick (Paul Thomas, EMANUELLE AROUND THE WORLD) recruits virginal love interest Barbara (Anna Ventura, THE DEVIL IN MISS JONES PART II) to pose as his wife at a swingers weekend to do some investigating. Also joining them for the weekend are more experienced swingers Francine (Sharon Kane, PUSS 'N BOOTS) and Jack (Ken Starbuck, SEXCALIBUR), their newbie guests Laura (SAME TIME EVERY YEAR's Tiffany Clark, who also performed the title song and served as assistant director) and Frank (Michael Bruce, BABYLON BLUE), and a masturbating pervert (Joey Silvera, THE FIRST TIME) among others. When things heat up, Nick warns Barbara to leave but ends up deflowering her. Their ensuing continuing bedroom antics as well as Barbara's jealousy over Nick's probing interrogation tactics leave little time for investigation but plenty of time for the audience to witness the various couplings up to and including the ranch's Friday night bash (which includes a choreographed hardcore ballet number). By that point, Nick or Barbara no longer care about the murder plot and neither does the audience (which is just as well as the film drops it in favor of more sex scenes until it reaches the required running time).

Comments

Impulse Pictures' single-layer, progressive, anamorphic transfer is likely the best this film has looked on any home video format (presumably the earlier DVD edition from adult label TVX is from a video master). The titles are scratchy but the image cleans up after that with bold colors and an image on par with good presentations of other films from the period shot by D.P. Joćo Fernandes (who adapted the name "Harry Flecks" from the Arriflex camera he owned and used for his X-rated assignments). Like the HD-mastered Vinegar Syndrome releases of more obscure adult films, the presentation seems limited by its elements rather than the encoding (Impulse is an off-shoot label of the technically reliable Synapse Films).
