Wishman Tries Her Hand at a Jerry Warren
The Hot Month of August (1966)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Jason and Alexis strike up a relationship but what they don't realize is that Alexis' husband has hired a private eye to follow her. When the husband learns of her affair he kills his wife but Jason is accused of the crime.

This here was a Greek film that was purchased by American sexploitation director Doris Wishman who then added narration, dubbing and edited the picture around some. I haven't seen the original Greek version to know how good or bad it is but this Jerry Warren wannabe job from Wishman really isn't one of her best moments.

As it stands, it's pretty hard to rate or judge films like this but there's no question that it's pretty boring all around. What really hurts the film is the fact that there's obviously a lot of "plot" going on but the dubbing pretty much takes all of that away and we're given really corny dialogue and the film just doesn't go anywhere. Even worse is the fact that it's hard to really judge the performances or anything else because of the lousy dubbing.

The reason Wishman would buy this film is because it does feature some spicy sex scenes as well as some nudity. Still, this isn't enough of a reason to sit through the film and especially since Wishman has her own work that is much better or at least much more her style.
