Rating: Self-applied X


Mary Jane, a teenage girl, goes to her Aunt and Uncles’ house for a 30-day vacation.

The picture is a comedy in which the Uncle, by chance, sees his niece one day in the nude, in the bedroom. The Uncle, after feasting upon the gorgeous body of his niece, falls in love with her and begs her not to go out on dates so often but to stay home and keep him company. The old timer makes love to the young chick.

Funny things happen when the old rooster is caught between the chick and the hen.

One of five movies released by Re-Mart International, a Tampa-based film production and distribution company co-owned by producer Joseph Fink (DEATH CURSE OF TARTU, STING OF DEATH) and director Rene Martinez, Jr. (THE GUY FROM HARLEM, THE SIX THOUSAND DOLLAR NIGGER). Their first release, ROAD OF DEATH (1973), was an R-rated biker flick directed by Martinez and starring Carol Connors and Jack Birch. YOUNG, RICH AND RIPE (1974) and RIDE TO ECSTASY were released with self-applied X ratings, but THE KID AND THE KILLERS (1974) and something called THE SANGUINARY (1974) -- which is also known as SHOCK and may or may not be the U.S. release of LA CASA SIN FRONTERAS (1972) -- were rated PG. When Fink succumbed to brain cancer shortly after these five hit theaters, Re-Mart dissolved and Martinez (who may have directed RIDE TO ECSTASY) went on to make the two worst blaxploitation movies of all time.
