Tagline:  Any Man Could Have Her ... But Only The Hardest Was A Match For - "Sweet Georgia"

Plot:  Country-Western Wildcats! Marsha Jordan - the first real star of Sexploitation - is Sweet Georgia, the sex-crazed nympho wife of rancher Big T. Unfortunately, because Big T is an ugly, abusive drunk, Georgia looks for her lovin' elsewhere - starting with Cal, the stud ranchhand, then moving on to Virginia, Big T's daughter, who spends her days riding her horsey in the nude. Of course, since Georgia's only Virgina's stepmom, the two think a little down-home girl-girl action is perfectly fine, especially around a romantic campfire. But when Georgia makes it with dumb ol' Leroy, everything gets violent. Yup, just when you think you've got this film figured out, an accidental death somehow escalates into one grisly murder after another.

My rating: 5/10

Will I watch it again?  Nnnnope.

I'll give anything Something Weird Video puts out and they've released a lot of shit.  Count this one among them.  You're looking at standard exploitation fare with a little over an hour of padded simulated sex, some talking, music that totally doesn't fit any scene yet two dudes are credited with the music, tits and some semblance of a story.  It looks like a bad drive-in flick that you take your date to and make out until after the credits roll.  There's only two chicks in the picture and they both get nekkid!

That's mom on the right with the bigger jugs.  She bangs just about everybody (including her step sister on the left).  As per usual in these types of pictures from the 60s and 70s, the sex scenes aren't erotic one bit.  There is a big surprise when Georgia (Jordan) (AKA stepmom) gets stomped to death by a horse.  See, she was banging the dim witted ranch hand in the stable.  For some reason he's holding a hammer and nearly naked when her husband pulls up, suspects that he raped and killed her and then kills the ranch hand with a pitch fork.  OK, that's not normal.  15 minutes left and the only woman left, Virginia (Mills), bangs another dude. Hell, the ending even has her pop going for his daughter and then more people die.  At least there's lots of murder in the last twenty minutes.  I can dig it.  There's no mistake, though, it's not a good flick no matter what your tolerance is.  It's a SWV release so that means it's a double feature with LOTS of extras (which are usually better than the films they accompany).  The other film is COUNTRY HOOKER (1970).  I hope it's better than this one.  This release is lighter on extras.  You get the trailer for COUNTRY HOOKER, two shorts and two galleries of Harry Novak exploitation art and photos.  If CH doesn't do it for me then bye bye DVD.
