OT: MISS LESLIE'S DOLLS (1972)

For various reasons, this truly obscure ultra-low budget exploitation film from 1972 kept making me think of DS. After about 15 minutes, I found myself wondering if the working title for the movie had been something like The Reincarnation of Leona Eltridge:

It says somewhere that at least one of the actors appeared in a Russ Meyers film, so it's not surprising that there is some female nudity involved. The script makes references to, or simply steals from, such earlier films as House of Wax, Psycho, and numerous "hot co-ed" features of the era.

Most of the performers seem to be reciting lines off cue-cards which in itself gives a certain familiar vibe, but "Miss Leslie'"s performance had moments of genuine pathos. Really insane, off-the-wall pathos. Again, let's call it the Collinwood effect.

cheers, G.
