Not sure why I bothered with this set, other than whim. I have a bit of admiration for Roger Corman, he's managed to survive making low-budget films, they aren't always good but they do make money. I'm mostly talking about the work he directed. Roger hasn't directed anything since 1990 but he's still producing. The quality of the films isn't much better than the stuff he did in the 60s, even though the quality of film making has improved so much. Roger didn't direct any of the movies in this set, even though they were released from 1971 to 1974. They're a mixed bag in quality but they have a lot of naked ladies in them. I'm sure that's what put butts in seats.
Candy Stripe Nurses 1974 Written and directed by Alan Holleb. It was the first film for Alan and his second last. He directed the 1985 sex comedy School Spirit, about a dead guy with a condom to fill, and didn't direct anything else.
Some young ladies are candy strippers at a local hospital. They all get involved with different men that have issues. It's a mix of melodrama, crime, action and sex. Something happens to get the people to the hospital. One guy goes to use the bathroom at a gas station during a robbery. He gets hurt and the police think he was part of the pair who robbed the place. The nurse who takes a chance on him investigates the charge. Another gal takes up with a drug taking basketball player. One of the doctors in the hospital is supplying him with the drugs. I thought it was the best of the lot. The story was fairly descent and for a guy's first film the direction was OK too. It scores a 4.4 on the IMDb, I gave it a 5, it was pretty close but not a 6.
Night Call Nurses 1972 Written by George Armitage and Danny Opatoshu with Jonathan Kaplan directing. This was the worst of the lot for me. The whole subplot with the black revolutionary was embarrassing to watch and the rest wasn't much farther behind. The ladies were nice, running about in the altogether but there wasn't enough square footage of skin to make up for that script.
Private Duty Nurses 1971 This one has another weak script, also by George Armitage, who's also the director. There's a whole bit with the doctor and the nurse getting involved with a gang of drug dealers that's pretty ham handed. It's got an emotional scene near the end that none of the actors can deliver. There's hardly any likeable characters in either of George's films here and he's not much of an action director either. The shoot out with the drug dealers is some sad shit. Interestingly enough George would go onto direct a couple of entertaining movies, out of his 7 total, Miami Blues and Grosse Point Blank. His last movie was The Big Bounce in 2004, not that great but watchable.
The Young Nurses 1973 Howard R Cohen was the writer and Clint Kimbough is the director. Another drug ring, this time working out of the hospital, and nothing much else going on, other than the ladies stripping and jumping in the sack all the time. Below average.
Not a stellar bunch of films here but they are, on average, better than a lot of the content of many of those multi movie packs, especially the horror ones.
