[STONEY / THE KILLER LIKES CANDY - Widescreen and Fullscreen presentations] 'Stoney' stars the gorgeous Barbara Bouchet, who never looked lovlier and had as much screen time devoted to her considerable assets, but this is the sole reason to check this Code Red dud out. Not even the presence of Michael Rennie and Richard Jaeckel can add a noteworthy moment to this Phillipino fiasco - if it weren't for the early 70's fashions and nudity of its star, there'd be absolutely no reason to suffer through this stinker. But for her legion of fans, it's a must. She's radiant and bewitching in every scene. It's a mishmosh of espionage and double-crossing with several action scenes that temporarily elevate it from the trenches of tedium. The flick appears to be missing a few scenes and was edited incorrectly at several points, blowing any semblence of continuity, not that it really matters. So much for that.
The second flick, 'The Killer Likes Candy', is about a killer hired to take out a ruler of a ficticious country, and his weakness is his sweet tooth, leaving candy wrappers at the scenes of his crimes. Kerwin Matthews plays the CIA agent trying to catch him before his plan is complete. Marilu Tolo co-stars in this typically predictable and rather boring entry in a genre that had run its course a few years before this release.
Recommended for completists only (and fans of the luscious BB,'natch), all else should probably avoid, no matter how 'Stoney' or sweet-toothed you may be.
