I haven’t seen Outlaw Ladies in forever, and it popped up on Mark’s blog, so I figured I’d revisit. I’m glad I did.
We open with Marlene Willoughby getting herself beautiful, only to have R. Bolla throw a brief hump into her under the covers. She’s unfulfilled, and an archetype for the movie — the rich and bored wives of the rich and straying husbands.
Bobby Astyr lets Juliet Anderson know he’s going to be working late, which is great for her so she can set up a tryst between herself and Ron Hudd, with an assist from Jody Maxwell. Juliet explains to Jody that she wants to use the new vibrator today, so when she gives the word, Jody should apply it.
Ron gets out of the shower and Juliet directs the sex like a pro. All dirty talk and telling him what she needs him to do (“Don’t pull my head; just hold your cock so you don’t shoot too soon…“) while she blows him, then she rides him and has Jody (clothed throughout) shove the vibrator up her bum which brings Juliet to orgasm and then she leaps off Ron and jerks him off onto her face.
Next, we see Marlene Willoughby as a high-fashion model (by day!) being photographed by Henri Pachard and Josh Andrews and then we cut to her in a bubble bath which seems to be how she transforms to high-class callgirl by night. Bobby Astyr shows up at Marlene’s apartment (complete with African-American Maid,played by Jolet Kodet!) and she starts things off by eating his ass for a little before blowing him then riding him cowgirl. She has panties sticking out of her netherbits which she flutters across Bobby’s cock before wrapping the panties around his cock as she kneels down to suck him to completion. She then wipes him up using them and offering them as a souvenir. He’s not sure what to do with them.
Veronica Hart busts into to R. Bolla‘s office exclaiming “Not guilty! That little Puerto Rican is now free! I got him free.” and they argue about the billing status of the case. He calls in Merle Michaels, his secretary, and reads her the riot act for not sending the bill to court with Veronica. She apologizes and leaves. Veronica is all fired up and wants to get back to work on a murder appeal for another client. She eschews an offer of dinner with “Harry” to work late. She calls Harry to tell him she’s working late and asks him to fix his own dinner… her desire to work on the murder appeal is quickly forgotten as she calls John Leslie to get together at the office. Slight awkwardness as she’s chastised by the cleaning lady (Cami Graham) for working so hard, and then she gets caught leading John back to her office and by R. Bolla and Merle who are leaving together.
Veronica asks John to “put it up her backside” tonight. He asks if she’s ever done it, she says no, so John explains that prep is necessary. That she keeps calling it “her backside” is funny. She’s bent over her desk and he goes straight to the A. Eventually, she relents and calls it “her ass” and as the phone rings – her husband asking where food is kept — John cums all over her ass. She’s upset because she wanted him to cum inside, but she “tightened up and pushed [him] out.” This scene is a little dark with Veronica’s face in a bit of shadow.
Also of note, a chorus singing “OUTLAW LA-DIES!” between each scene.
Merle and R. Bolla are at her apartment enjoying some jug wine when her mom calls. They go back to making out post-call and we briefly cut to Samantha Fox driving down 42nd Street, eyeing Show World (in its former glory). Back to Merle and R. he eats her out a bit, then she sucks him off and they fuck in missionary; but she gets very anxious that he not cum inside her, so she offers to suck him off and she jerks him off between her breasts and cleans him off. What’s nice is, up until this point, the guys (except for John Leslie, and his was done for dramatic purposes) aren’t jacking themselves off.
We cut to a dive bar where Joey Silvera is drinking beers with Debbie Revenge and others (Geri Avant, Margo Dumont) while Jody Maxwell looks on. Samantha Fox walks in as it caught off-guard by Jody’s presence. Joey leads the two socialites upstairs to a small apartment where the most prominent feature is the bed. the two girls take turns servicing Joey and the dialog is pretty tawdry, with Samanatha and Jody asking Joey about fucking the “girl downstairs” and commenting that they can taste her pussy on his dick. They fuck him and finally he cums in Jody’s mouth as Samantha jerks him off, but they cut around the ejaculation, and it’s pretty dark, so there’s some reliance on your imagination…
Finally, the movie spends its last 10 minutes wrapping up the Merle Michaels character. Long story short, Merle wants something more from R. Bolla, who says nix since they work together and she should be able to go out and meet some young people. It’s perhaps the nicest brush-off on record. He returns home to Marlene, shares the good news about the not guilty verdict, but his wife is aware something is up. Back at the office, he asks Veronica to fire Merle. Back in Merle’s apartment, she’s moping around and the phone rings, and it’s John Leslie (not her mother!) and he wants to go out, but she asks him to come over instead. He says he’ll pick up some food and wine and he’ll be by. Back in R. Bolla’s house, the phone rings and Merle gives her the message “Instead of fucking my tits, he should fuck your tits… and if he can’t fuck your tits, then he should fuck HIMSELF!”
The thing that lifts this movie is the chemistry the performers have. They’re all pros and they can all act, and it goes a long way to keeping things believable. The final line is delivered believably, when in lesser hands it could have been painful. The establishing scenes are all sensible and give the following sex acts some context.
This is an easy movie to watch, the sex scenes aren’t soul-crushing marathons.
Best scenes - Veronica Hart / John Leslie because they’re go great at what they do. There’s not a lot of variety in the scene – she doesn’t even blow him – but they’ve got a chemistry. The Merle Michaels / R. Bolla scene succeeds because she’s so breathlessly enthusiastic. The other scenes are all good too. Just watch the movie. It’s only 85 minutes long!
