Format: DVD
1974's ALICE GOODBODY, writer/director Tom Scheuer's comedic tale of a would be actress who falls in with casting couch auditions and horny Hollywood power players, is an appropriately scathing poke at the American movie industry machine. It's also pretty damn funny and it features an interesting cast sure to appeal to any fan of seventies drive-in cinema.

Sharon Kelly (probably better known as her XXX alias, Colleen Brennan), plays the titular Alice, a gorgeous redhead who works a day job at a Los Angeles diner run by a Mr. Popadopalous (played by the mighty Vic Caesar, immortalized in Duke Mitchell's Massacre Mafia Style). Like many others, however, Alice wants to make it as an actress. When she meets a production manager named Myron Mittleman (Daniel Kaufman) who sees in her a spark of talent, she leaves her job for a chance to work as an extra on the upcoming production of Julius Caesar, Crowd Pleaser. Things don't quite work out as she had envisioned them, but with the fire lit, she's not going to give up on her dreams without a fight.

Not quite able to make it just on the merits of her thesping alone, Alice realizes that she's got other ways of getting the attention of Hollywood moguls as she sleeps her way through a production manager named Arnold Nern (Norman Sheridan), a director named Roger Merkin (George 'Buck' Flower), a leading man named Rex Livingston (Keith McConnell), a director named J.C. Van Himmel (Norman Fields) and eventually a studio head named Manny Spearman (Arem Fisher).

A strange mix of slapstick and raunchy sex comedy, Alice Goodbody works far better than it probably had any right to. Thanks to Kelly's charisma in the lead role, it's hard not to like Alice and hope she's able to make it one way or another.

This is a movie that comes with the GP and R rated versions. It really is a hoot to watch, either version. I wish there were more videos like this. I had watched the GP version twice before "discovering" the R version. I highly recommend this if your not offended by nudity, of which there is little of in the GP version.

This is an old Hollywood shaggy dog story - told with great raunchy humor and fast pace.
I laughed out loud from the beginning right through to the punch-line!
See it!
