The Babysitter (1969)
Bikersploitation film but also tries to be romantic and sexy at the same time. I guess it was shooting for a Billy Jack Born Losers type thing but focuses less on action and revenge.
A vicious biker gang comes up with a plan to get their murdering friend out of the tank by black mailing the prosecutor of his legal case. It just so happens that the D.A. has been cheating on his wife with a teenage babysitter. His daughter is a lesbian and the biker gang has pictures to prove it. However all the biker stuff is very minimal and the main story focuses on the cheating husband and the teenage blond beauty.
There is enough nudity to keep the average sleazoid happy for 75 minutes or so and we are treated to some knife violence, lesbian sex, violent hair cutting and some silly 60's go-go dancing. The dialogue is cheesy most of the time and we do have quite a bit of over and under acting depending on the actor but this one just seems to fly by.
The director would do a movie called A Weekend With The Babysitter in the following year which seems very similar in plot. I am yet to see that one but if it is half as good as this movie I am sure it will be getting another good write up.
