Full movie description "My Body Hungers":Marcia, a sexy bucolic orphan, hitch-hikes to the city to meet up with her sister, who has promised her a job at the roadhouse where she works as a hostess. She has no qualms about sleeping with her driver in order to be safeguarded to her destination. Once she arrives, she discovers that her sister has recently been violently murdered -- in a stangulation by garter belt. Marcia takes her sister's job in order to go undercover in finding the murderer. She thus imperils her own life while making discoveries about her sister's former lifestyle and the seamy antics of the local civic leaders.
Reviews of the My Body HungersAs a movie, "The Body Hungers" (1967) is downright bad, and reviewer lor_ indicates why, which is that the story-telling is awful, and the acting matches it. There's no point in dwelling too much on the movie's faults. The acting is stilted, the pacing way off, the scenes bungled and not captured the way they should be. The music covers up the appropriate use of sound effects.
Instead, consider the movie as a quaint artifact of its time. Actually the movie is more a 50s movie, in its black and white. It could have made a decent noir had it been done with some professionalism. I think the cast tried and so did writer-director Joe Sarno, but they just couldn't get a smooth act together. Instead, look at what we have as a document of the times, and there it scores highly and has interest. We have a lone girl without means of employment trying to make it in the world, and finding that she can be a hostess, not a waitress, not a factory worker, not a secretary, and not a prostitute. She comes to a small New England town and finds her older sister has been murdered. She resolves to hang in there where her sister worked and find out what she can. The club is frequented by leering men in suits out for some company and entertainment and possibly sex. Only the dancers provide the sex, when they're not dancing, which is most of the time. They enjoy being sexy and showing their shapely behinds. There is something honest about this; they leer as much as the patrons. Our heroine is dressed nicely and circulates, and she may or may not have had a lesbian experience from a girl in a nearby room when she needed a massage to relieve a headache. She stripped enough to make that a distinct possibility, but just in case we missed something, she takes a bath, somewhat discreet, but not altogether. The movie was designed to sell because of some sex content.
Sarno makes sure we at least glimpse the dancers more in the buff too. The movie is showing us one side of sex in the 50s, when pole dancing was not yet in existence. Instead it was burlesque type dancing to bluesy sounds; and there was more teasing to it and more sexy underwear before Victoria's Secret ever existed. The police are on the case but ineffective. The script manages to raise a number of suspects, so that we cannot determine for sure who the murderer is. And do we ever know why the murder occurred? The movie is more interested in the rather forlorn Gretchen Rudolph character and the frustrated patrons who must buy sex or rent the brief company of the hostesses by buying them drinks. New England probity, thrift, hard work, morality? Nowhere to be seen. The movie shows us the underside, which makes it noir. Almost completely inept, but still noir.
Rudolph manages to maintain her dignity, despite all. Her character has spunk and is placed in opposition to some other women in the film who do not come off as well. The film is actually good in showing a variety of sides of females. Its male characters are not as interesting; they mostly seem focused or fascinated by the females in their midst.
