Movie Info

Screenwriter Jack Moran (FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL) is Dewey Hoople, a widower who lives with his common-law wife and his beautiful young daughter in a ramshackle Arizona resort on the Colorado River. He pays Cracker (Franklin Bolger), a crusty old boatman, to bring customers for drinks and entertainment that consists of his wife (Babette Bardot) performing a nude torch ritual and their lovely teenage daughter, Coral (Adele Rein), dancing to records. Things get particularly lively at Hoople's Hideaway when Cracker brings in Dr. Ross (John Furlong), his wife (Alaina Capri), and the mysterious Barney (Ken Swofford). Before too long, Dr. Ross is contemplating suicide, the sexual tension between Mrs. Ross and Barney is smoldering, and Barney is revealed to be much more dangerous than he seems. The visual distillation of Polynesian-influenced tiki-bar style, COMMON-LAW CABIN plays like a particularly spicy sitcom. With no actual sex but typically spiked dialogue and some fleeting glimpses of female breasts, the film manages to convince viewers that they are watching something gleefully naughty. Throw in another sexy performance from Capri (GOOD MORNING AND GOODBYE) and a disarming incest theme and the film stands up as another eminently watchable, entirely unique Russ Meyer production.
