DVD Evaders: Pretty Maids All In A Row (1971)
One of my absolute favorite films, PRETTY MAIDS ALL IN A ROW is a movie that defies categorization. Sometimes it's a teen coming of age tale. Other times it's a wacky late 60's early 70's sex comedy. And then it's also an all-star murder mystery. The most oddest fact about this picture is that it was produced & written by Star Trek's Gene Roddenberry (James Doohan shows up in the film as Telly Savalas' sidekick!) I guess Gene was trying to shake off the fact that his show was canceled by coming up with this doozy of a script. Or maybe it was his chance to be around so many fine lookin' 70's babes.
Either way, PRETTY's got something for everyone. So why hasn't MGM put this fun film out on DVD for the world to enjoy?
