Description: Zeb finds a doll and a ring in a garbage can. Then, he sees Ann going to work with her friend Babs. He thinks she looks like the doll. When he gets home, he caresses the doll… Ann feels it! When Zeb finds out about Ann’s fiance Tom, he really gets mad, burns the doll, and beats it up, which makes Ann think she’s losing her mind.
Anybody wanting to watch this movie for the sex will be severely disappointed. It features some soft porn (sort of) scenes, but mostly it’s just some fairly attractive ladies walking around in lingerie or half-naked.
The good: I enjoy older movies, particularly B movies, for the visuals. B movies seems to capture things (cars, decor, outfits, furniture) that often gets missed in the bigger movies (where many things are generic after a while.) This movie features some great furniture, lingerie, and what a crazy guy’s apartment might look like in 1967. Also, the cinematography was interesting, it was black and white, and at times had an almost artsy feel (probably a sign of the times, though). The pace was slow, featured well-framed shots, and had great (kitschy) music throughout. It was also neat that the lead actress was made up to look like a doll (check out her eye make-up…)
The gems: The lead actress, probably due to poor editing, changed lingerie in the middle of scenes repeatedly. Jeb had great pants, probably to make him look nerdy (although all the “cool” people wear pants too short for them now). Babs lover has an amazing moustache! And what a titillating toe “sucking” scene! Also, this film was only 75 minutes, making it’s slow pace a bit more palatable.
