  • Widows and Widowers

This Italian sex comedy is likely included in Peary’s book as a representative film of this genre — and/or because of the starring presence of sexy Andress:

… who is “forced” to seduce a teenage boy (Stefano Sabelli) when he accidentally learns about his family’s murderous plans:

There is a refreshing plot twist at one point which helps to perk things up, but overall this is a tedious, hopelessly awful flick. While it delivers on the tenets of its genre — providing plenty of female nudity and slapstick “comedy” — it will really only be of interest to those who appreciate this type of fare. Watch for Jack Palance in a tiny supporting role as a menacing American businessman:

… and Thunderball (1965) Bond girl Luciana Paluzzi as Sabelli’s mother:

Redeeming Qualities and Moments:

  • Ennio Guarnieri’s cinematography

One thought on “Sensuous Nurse, The (1975)

  1. First viewing. Skip it.

    Not quite as vulgar as I anticipated it might be – and it’s more tedious than awful. But, at any rate, it’s still kind of dumb.
