Talks With Her What?!

director: Tom Desimone
starring: Candice Rialson · Jane Kean · Larry Gelman · Arlene Martel
· Perry Bullington · Rip Taylor
can be said about this film? Crass. Juvenile. Politically incorrect
(especially in 2018!),
but very funny and it works. This legendary Grindhouse trashmania
is especially enduring because of Candice Rialson and her brilliant
interpretation of a difficult character, not to mention the assured
direction from filmmaker Tom Desimone.
is the story of Penelope
Pittman, a beauty shop hairdresser, with a talking vagina. One night,
without warning - after she and boyfriend Ted are knock knees - Penelope's
pussy starts talking up a storm, mostly insulting Ted's rather stale
performance. He gets pissed (Ted thinks Penelope is somehow making fun
of him) and leaves. Concerned, she goes to a psychiatrist, Dr Pearl.
But he see dollar signs, and realizes this freakish oddity - with clever
one-liners and a surprisingly good singing voice - could make a lot
of money. He becomes her agent and starts booking her on a variety of
TV shows. Penelope and 'Virginia' also record a hit disco song called
"Wang Dang Doodle," pop up on the Dating Game,
and star in a musical sex film [surrounded by dancing and singing men
dressed in chicken costumes]. After much embarrassment for Penelope,
the whole thing ends with an unexpected, rather welcomed denouement.
Rialson was an American actress who played the wide-eyed innocent in
many DriveIn pictures, including Mama's Dirty Girls, Pets,
Moonshine County Express and Candy Stripe Nurses.
She unexpectedly retired in 1979 but her fans remembered her fondly.
Quentin Tarantino said he patterned the Bridget Fonda character in Jackie
Brown after Candice. Sadly, Ms Rialson died at age 54 from liver
disease in March 2006.
