Lorna (1964)

Not Russ Meyer's finest moment, this early attempt at moving from nudie-cuties into narrative cinema has a glaring weakness in its title character. Far from being the typical Amazon goddess that one usually finds in Meyer films, Lorna is a sullen dullard. The leisurely pace isn't too helpful either (this film feels much longer than its 78-minute running time). It does have its moments, mostly involving Hal Hopper's gleeful provocations, but I think it's best to consider this a baby step towards better things and leave it be at that.

Grade: C+
