Did You Know?


While this film is not a full-on, chronological sequel to The Babysitter (1969), it is clearly its spiritual successor. George E. Carey wrote, produced, and starred in both films (albeit as similarly situated, but different characters) and Don Henderson directed both pictures. The films also share the general plot-line of a married, older man engaging in a May-December fling with his child's babysitter. The titular babysitter is named Candy Wilson in both pictures although she is portrayed by different actresses (Susan Romen in this film and Patricia Wymer in The Babysitter). See more »


Toward the end of the film, Rich steers the boat at full speed toward the pier. When Jim sees the boat from his airplane it is stationary and no wake can be detected behind the boat. If the boat was traveling at even a moderate speed, its wake could be detected from the air. See more »


Candy Wilson: [criticizing the script] Nobody talks that way!
Jim Carlton: Well, I didn't write it.
Candy Wilson: I'm sorry, forget it.
Jim Carlton: I'm just supposed to direct the picture. It starts in two weeks.
Candy Wilson: [filled with irony] Lots of luck!
Jim Carlton: What are we supposed to do, hire a teenager to write our shooting scripts?

Chow, baby.

There was a shooting star named Patricia Wymer, who appeared in a 1969 film by the same director called The Babysitter. She only did about three movies and then disappeared.

Director Don Henderson brings in a new girl, Susan Romen, to play Candy Wilson, the babysitter. She only made two films. As a matter of interest, Henderson quit directing the same time after only three films. I wonder what happened to all these people.

Anyway, while movie producer Jim Carlton (George E. Carey) is having fun with the babysitter and her hippie friends, his wife Mona (Luanne Roberts) is captive to her drug dealer.

This is not the typical grindhouse film of the 70s. It was more a drama about hippies and drugs. Yes, there was some nudity and woman on woman action, but it was rather tame.

Still, a good story, if the acting was a bit lame.

Who was taking care of the kids while Jim and the babysitter were having fun?
