Blame it On Rio

The sort of thing Playboy would make if they hired a real scriptwriter. The remake of a French comedy, two middle aged fathers take their teenage daughters (Johnson and Moore in what must be one of her earliest roles) on holiday to Rio where Johnson seduces Caine, acting on a childhood crush and throwing his adult world into turmoil.

It's a comic turn and no great stretch for Caine or Bologna, but what I could say about Michelle Johnson's faultless nudity and beauty could be a review in itself, and explains the photographic memory I have of this film, its dialogue, scenery, and cheesy soundtrack. All of 14 at the time, I spent endless hours staring in wonder at her angelic lissomness, and her face in cameos from Death Becomes Her to Working Class Man is still instantly familiar.
