Trivia

In the documentary "That's Sexploitation!," Frank Henenlotter, a director and exploitation film historian, said Sexploitation focused on lesbians for titillation and shock with this film. But in this purported documentary, their relationships were treated as real and valuable. Made four years before the Stonewall riots, it explores butch-femme pairings and features a lesbian wedding when such a thing was unthinkable. "A subject that only a short time ago was talked about in low whispers," as the narrator explains. Not that the filmmakers' aspirations were political. "These were films about lesbians made by guys who didn't care about lesbians," Mr. Henenlotter said. "They cared about showing two girls doing it rather than one girl and a guy." See more »

To Protect the Public

Chained Girls (1965)

** (out of 4)

This is a fake documentary from director Joseph P. Mawra and producer George Weiss (GLEN OR GLENDA?) who at the same time were releasing the Olga series. This documentary tries to protect people and inform them on the serious subject, which could lead to more lesbians taking over society. This earnest documentary tries to warn people what to look for so that they don't come down with the lesbian virus. Seem stupid? Well this documentary certainly is and it certainly falls in line with stuff like REEFER MADNESS as it's just so downright idiotic yet I'm sure some will get laughs from it. I think if any lesbian were to watch this today they're obviously going to be very offended as the word "dyke" is thrown around like it's a scientific word for lesbians. We learn that many women between 30-35 are single because they're lesbians. We're learn that a quarter of girls who go to college or lesbians. We also learn that most lesbians come from fathers who wanted boys instead. These are just some of the "facts" that we're told throughout the 61-minute running time so obviously no one should be coming to this thing expecting anything to take serious. The running time is thankfully short but even so the film runs on a bit too long and runs out of gas around the thirty-minute mark. Those expecting a lot of nudity will be disappointed as there's very little and the majority of the running time just features some silly make out scenes. Narrator Joel Holt is priceless in his job because he's able to be so straight while reading his ridiculous words. CHAINED GIRLS isn't going to appeal to very many people but I think grindhouse fans might enjoy it after a few beers.
