The Family That Plays Together - stays together!
If the U.S. country of the seventies was like what we see here, there
is a bit 'of envy about we were born much later and in another
Hurrah for freedom! Girls who make shower outdoor, couples who had sex
in the animal enclosure, all running naked or nearly free and
uninhibited to the maximum count in the fresh air. We don't know if it
was so, we don't think, but nudity, voyeurism and extreme freedom of
consumption, were the pillars of that life in the province.
We are confident, however, that these three things are central to the
film debut of director Bethel Buckalew. An artist that in the world of
cinema occupied with other things than the direction, putting himself
behind the camera in just eleven occasions.
This is the first of 1970 and already describes what is the line of the
Buckalew movies, everyone focused on eroticism offhand of
"sexploitation" and many of them with themes "hillbilly".
The rural U.S. climate that he describes is not bad and is the best
thing about this film that travels through farms, dust and tits.
Buckalew don't spare naked bodies, showing what he can, but he cuts
deep in the plot, which was almost absent in "Country Cuzzins".
To give a sense to this movie, we can say that he was looking to
show for a contrast or the differences between country life and
But on balance it remains in the background, leaving the task is extremely light to carry on.
That thin thread of story recounts the life of the family Peabody, an
happy country family, who one day receive a visit from a relative from
Los Angeles. You might think that she remains shocked by the life of
the family "hillbilly", so much to create a minimum of conflict, but
no, she appreciates almost immediately and adapts to local life with
Same thing when she hosting in Los Angeles all the relatives, who happily have sex with whom and where it happens.
Very simple isn't? Also quite useless to the history of cinema and if
we find a moral might be that you just fuck and enjoy life.
More eventful is the life of the protagonist of the film. Rene Bond,
here in her first credited interpretation, in which she played Billie
Jo Peabody, uninhibited girl and everyone's goal. A sex symbol.
One feature that Rene had also in his long career. A career that began
(unfortunately), only for money and that it has developed in soft-core
and porn. From dancer in the strip club to actress famous for the
genre, who can boast of being the first actress of the genre who had
breast implantation which among other things apparently brought her
At the time married to actor Ric Lutze she has disappeared from the scene in the late seventies, after she became famous.
Her life has changed completely and she returns on tv in the 80's in a
TV quiz as competitor where she won a certain sum of money. She died in
mid 90's only forty-six.
The most famous name, however, is that of George "Buck" Flower, who
says his biography on IMDB is one of the few who can boast of having
played from the soft-core films to family movies, passing in all genres
between. He starred as fixed cameos in the films of Carpenter.
