they never explain what they mean by "background". that word has a LOT of connotations.

Am I alone in having my imagination start running away with me when the marriage counselor starts talking about "similar background." It's way too easy to think of him giving a very soft-spoken, condescending explanation to an interracial couple about how their miscegenation could simply never work, on account of the great psychological distance that naturally exists between white women and negroes.

Yup, this is the LEAST erotic film I've ever seen. Amazing when you think the producers of this thought it'd drive men wild in droves to see it. Guess they had the policy of "Once you have their money .. RUN!!".

Watching Norah Batty (Google "Last of the summer wine") doing the ironing would be sexier than this .. and no I don't think that would be sexy in the least ... but it's still a million times more than this film. Never seen such butt ugly .. erm .. I guess we'll call them 'women', in my life.

This movie obviously wants us to root for Peaches.
But not only are her standards lower than dirt, dirt dwarfs her intellectually.

I want to club the boy and girl in the short to death. What selfish, ignorant bastards. Use the money her parents are sacrificing to give her an education on "getting by" and getting a crappy job instead? Do they really think the parents are just going to give her all that money in a lump sum, no questions asked?

After watching both this short and "Is This Love?", I'm convinced that they just want to stop young people from quitting college: That was the main objection of the girl's parents in both shorts.

The weirdest thing about this movie is that there are moments that look like someone involved with it had a real catch wrestling background. The head toss at 1:14:25 (or so) isn't an easy move to pull off.

This was an instant favorite and, in fact, is quickly becoming one of my top ten MST3K all-timers. Wall-to-wall meaty, beefy riffing goodness. Some of my favorite riffing happens at those points in the movie where there's really bad cuts, like it's an old print that's been broken and spliced back together several times; it's the riffs at those points where Mike'n'the Bots are mocking the bad splices, where the soundtrack is hacked up so badly that the dialogue doesn't make any sense.

Here's a totally useless trivia factoid: Timothy Farrell, our ill-fated crooked women's rasslin' promoter here, also starred in at least two Ed Wood pictures that I remember: he also played a hood in "Jailbait" (1954), and a psychiatrist -- if you can believe it -- in the classic "Glen Or Glenda?" (1953).
