is the explicit story of Maude Callahan, owner of Puss and Boots brothel
outside Reno, Nevada. She recounts various examples of her unique business
to a magazine journalist for an exclusive 'tell-all' article. As
she describes the unusual sexual antics, the audience is privy to graphic
hardcore erotica was virtually nonexistent in 1968. The Mitchell Brothers
had not opened their O'Farrell Theater in San Francisco as yet [that happened
in 1969 with the big-screen showing of stag films under the title Split
Beaver]. So, this film is something of a novelty. The government
was enacting strict laws against porn - usually based on depiction of
the angle of an erection (no more than 20%) - so, this hardcore movie
managed to skirt the law by showing only flaccid dicks [see pic below,
right]. But, obviously, the subject matter kept it from any kind of wide
distribution and - ironically - totally buried it when the law became
more lenient a few short years later.
this movie would be completely forgotten if not for Charles Napier. Shot
before Charles met Russ Meyer, this debut project leaves much to be desired.
A young Napier is barely recognizable in his mustache, dark glasses, and
fake hair [see pic below, center]. Cult actor Charles Napier is best known
for the movies directed by Russ Meyer (Beyond the Valley of the
Dolls, Super Vixens and Harry Cherry and Raquel).
Through the '80s and '90s, he did a lots of TV work in the States while
making movies for Italian studios (including Ruggero Deodato's CAMPING
DEL TERROR, Antonio Margheritti's ALIEN
FROM THE DEEP, and Umberto Lenzi's MEAN
TRICKS). Mr Charles Napier died from a stroke at age 75, October
