  • El Biffo's rating of the film Common Law Wife

    Somewhat better-than-average and slightly entertaining 1963 Exploitation Film. If you like this sort of thing, it's on youtube but only 76 minutes and doesn't have any nudity so I am guessing that the missing 5 minutes are the naughty bits, but I am not interested enough to look for an intact copy and find out. The film was ok. Pointless, meaningless, and a stupid story, but it has that "Je ne sais sleaze".
