Watch Commonlaw Wife
- 1 hr 16 min
(1963) Lucy Kelly, Annabelle Lee, George Edgely, Max Anderson. Although the competition is keen, this is probably our favorite exploitation film (SHANTY TRAMP is right up there, too). See it to believe it. A brick-house sex kitten (Kelly) makes the move on everyone from young studs to old men (she seems to really enjoy doing it, too). In particular, she has her eye on elderly Uncle Shug, who showers her with money in return for companionship and "favors." There's just one hitch, when she moves in, Uncle Shug kicks out his long-time common law wife. The fur really flies after that. An amazing cheapie that ranges from unintentional hilarity to dramatic intensity rarely found in films of this nature. The climax is brutally shocking and will rivet you to your seat. We're not kidding, either...whew! This film has that certain sleazy, gritty, black and white quality that's found in many other early '60s low budget schlockers. Grab a sixpack, this is a really great party film. Not a classic in the "classic" sense of the word, but a classic never-the-less. We highly, highly recommend this obscure exploitation gem. It would probably be rated "R." From 35mm.
