CANNON MONTH 2: The Yum Yum Girls (1976)

Melody (Michelle Daw, a one and done sex symbol) has just got off the bus from Ohio to Manhattan, but she’s no ingenue or doe-eyed innocent. Then again, she refuses to put out after a date and gets assaulted by a man who tells her that she “shouldn’t have eaten the hamburger.”

For those of us who grew up watching Cinemax after 1 AM on a Friday, this film has appearances by Tanya Roberts and Judy Landers.

Director Barry Rosen only made one other movie, but it’s Devil’s Express, and anyone that had the ability to cast Brother Theodore and Warhawk Tanzania knows something. This was written by Philli Levy, his only script, but oddly the man who typed the words to this sex farce would later be in bit parts in Sleepless In Seattle and The Curse of the Jade Scorpion. He was joined in writing this by Robert Jahn, who also wrote The Immoral Three and Bloodrage.

What makes this movie magical is this Ginger Lynn Allen intro, which made this one of her few VHS releases that you didn’t have to walk behind the magical adult section doors to rent and watch.
