CGiii Comment

Early Woody Allen was the nearest thing America got to Monty Python.

And just like MP - it was very controversial in the 70s - not now.

One scene that got cut was What Makes a Man a Homosexual?  Where a black widow eats her mate - enough said.

***

What is Sodomy? A doctor falls in love with one of his patients, a sheep named Daisy.

Are Transvestites Homosexuals? A middle-aged man experiments with women's clothes with surprisingly results.

What Are Sex Perverts? A game shows with memorable advertising.

What Happens During Ejaculation? Allen dressed as a sperm is not to be missed.

Some of it is genuinely funny...but it's the sheer inventiveness that makes it worthwhile.

The(ir) Blurb...

Seven segments related to one another only in that they all purport to be based on sections of the book by David Reuben. The segments range from "Do Aphrodisiacs Work?" in which a court jester gives an aphrodisiac to the Queen and is, in the end, beheaded to "What Happens During Ejaculation?" in which we watch 'control central' during a successful seduction.
