This slow-moving sexploitation film from director Doris Wishman (under the pseudonym Louis Silverman) concerns a nerd named Zeb (Trom Little) who finds a doll in a garbage can. Zeb, who wears cumbersome glasses and high-water pants, then spots pretty blond Ann (Sharon Kent) walking down the street. When he goes home, Zeb fondles the doll, which makes Ann feel invisible hands on her body across town. Ann thinks she’s going insane, and neither her friend Babs (Jackie Richards) nor her fiance Tom (Michael Lawrence) can seem to help her. Before long, Zeb spies on Ann and Tom together. In a fit of jealous rage, he twists the doll’s head off, killing Ann. Wishman pads the film with scenes of the aging Babs doing nude exercises, which is tantamount to seeing one’s mother in a blue movie. C. Davis Smith’s photography is passable, but the pacing is dreadful. Nothing happens for unbearably long stretches, during which Wishman seems content to linger on the female characters’ feet. Whether in shoes or barefoot, feet play a large role in this film. At one point, Ann is seen wearing shoes that Babs had on in the previous scene. When Babs makes love to her boyfriend Monty, she almost sucks his toes, then stops short. We then cut to Ann’s apartment to watch her pulling on pantyhose, curling her toes for the camera. One suspects that Wishman really wanted to make a foot-fetish film and didn’t have the nerve.

The search: This is one of the movies featured in the Something Weird Video opening trailer. This is a bit that’s played at the beginning of most Something Weird Videos that is a montage of movies they’ve re-released. I discovered the name of this movie via a preview featured in the extras section of “The Naked Witch.” At Scarecrow Video, I had to find this movie in the Sexploitation room, under “Sex Directors.”
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.
The bad: Like many movies of its genre, the plot doesn’t really go anywhere. It’s a bit redundant, since if it were stripped down to only it’s necessities, it would be barely long enough to fill a half hour TV slot.
