Time To Celebrate Nurses!
In a time where we are “sheltering at home”, I wanted to share some films that appreciated the work of Nurses…and in the 70’s, they were celebrated this way!
The Student Nurses – “They’re Learning Fast!”
Yes, let’s look at some of the most entertaining sexploitation movies of the 70’s that focused on nurses…whether they were in school “learning fast”, or doing a little extra “private duty”…
Private Duty Nurses – “It’s What They Do OFF Duty That’s Really Private!”
As you can see, these movies promised lots of sex – these movie posters are hilariously obvious – but they worked!
The films told the story of young Nurses who got caught up in all sorts of naked shenanigans while learning to help others!
The Young Nurses – “It’s My Body, Doctor – NOT Your Laboratory!”
These posters are so obvious they are hilarious!
Check out this classic trailer:
No matter how many sick patients there were, there was always time for a naked run on the beach!
There was quite a “run” of these films in the 70’s…
Candy Stripe Nurses! – “They’ll Give You Fast-Fast-Fast Relief!”
The movies may have seemed very similar, but who cares? Here is the trailer – listen to the hilarious language that opens it:
Of course, you can only be in nursing school, or in a hospital for so long, so what do you do? Add violence!
I love this movie, which includes a nurse with a machine gun!
Nurses For Sale – “Kidnapped, Abused & Tormented – Held For The Highest Price!”
As you can imagine, this Nurse was in the fight of her life…mostly, these films highlighted their willingness to work “overtime”:
Night Call Nurses!
As you can see, they were always on call! This 1972 film was exactly like the others, but clearly it was a profitable genre to milk for all it was worth!
Check out the trailer:
While the genre died down in the 80’s, there have been a few attempts to revive it, like this recent nurse horror film that was released – in 3D!
You can find this on demand and on home video – check out “Nurse 3D!”
Cheerleaders and nurses weren’t the only ones exploited…during the height of the “grind house” cinema phases, even hillbillies got a chance to shine as well!
“Flaming Hillbilly Color!”
As you can see, smart movie producers pandered to everyone! Read all about love in “flaming hillbilly color” by clicking here:
