Ed Wood himself stars in his final directorial effort, a lighthearted little nudie romp about a girl-crazy old man who poses as a photographer to entice beautiful models to his home. It's such an effective ruse that he not only coaxes his subjects out of their clothes ("It's for invisible clothes," he insists) and into his bedroom, but the unending stream of babes (along with the odd delivery man) turn his private little romp into a giggly orgy. This being an Ed Wood film, he also dresses up in women's lingerie when the angry agency owners put him on a leash and make him grovel for his impertinence. Barely over an hour long, the production plays like a primitive, unpolished version of a Playboy video--it features full nudity but no hardcore pornography--and Wood makes a remarkably genial lead. It's sad to see the cult director bow out with such material, but it's to his credit that he lends an air of innocence and exuberance to such a flesh-filled trifle. The film was originally called The Love Feast, as the Laugh-In-inspired body-paint credits remind us. --Sean Axmaker

The premise is that he invites models over for "auditions" he then gets them to strip in order to evaluate his new line of see through clothing. Through the day, more and more show up until the orgy gets into full swing. There is no more story to it than that. At least there was no more story that I was able to sit through.
At one time, I did not believe that there was a more boring or worse movie than GLEN OR GLENDA. I was wrong. This one is.
I you want soft core porn, I am sure there are better productions out there. If you want a movie for entertainment, this isn't it.
If 0 stars had been a choice, I would have taken it, unless there was something lower.
Second, aside from Glen or Glenda, this is one of our rare instances to see our pal Eddie act in a featured role as opposed to a cameo or small role. He's actually quite funny in this film, especially in the beginning; I am reminded of his role as Pops in Fugitive Girls (1974). (His other role in The Fugitive Girls shows his diversity as an actor.) The size of Mr. Murphy's underpants in Pretty Models is rather funny, too! We also see him humiliated in drag, his second of four roles in which he crossdresses.
Something Weird Video released a version of this film that was edited (as a companion to their X-rated version of Necromania on VHS). This is the full-length production.
I recommend this film for people comfortable with the sleazy side of Wood. That is, the era of his work that would have come after that depicted in Tim Burton's film Ed Wood, when Eddie primarily worked on smutty pulp and rarely had a chance to work with or on film anymore.
The double-sided disc also features the Wood documentary Look Back in Angora from 1994.
The plot, if you can call it that, involves the slightly scary character played by Ed Wood, himself, inviting models to his house where they all end up gettin' naked. Might sound good to some but this has to be seen to be believed (and that's not a recommendation!).
Summary: Hire it but don't buy it.
