Resurrection of Eve (1973) is a Mitchell Brothers production from the Golden Era of porn, and features the 99 and 44/100% pure Marilyn Chambers.  (Scoop's note: for you younger guys, Ivory Snow was one of the most successful major consumer products in the United States in the late 19th century. Their legendary slogan was "99 44/100% pure. It floats."  The product and the slogan endured. At one time in the 1960's, Marilyn was the girl on the Ivory Snow box. Her subsequent career was somewhat more impure.)
As the film starts, we see Eve at 13, nearly seduced by a friend of her dead father. Then Eve is shacking up with a radio DJ. After a fight over his jealousy, she leaves, and puts her face through a windshield in an auto accident. The plastic surgeon does an incredible job, and she is far more lovely than before, so the DJ marries her. After several months of happiness, he decides they should attend swinger parties. She is against it, but gives in, and spends the first one hiding in the bathroom. At the second one, she participates, but doesn't enjoy it. After a while, she gets into the spirit. The more she enjoys it, the more hubby wants to stop.


The young Eve is played by Nancy Weich, who shows a gynocam shot. Pre accident Eve is Mimi Morgan, who shows all three Bs, and the new improved Eve is played by Chambers, who also shows everything. The credits list dozens of swing party attendees, and many of them show body parts at the swing parties. Johnny Keyes from Behind the Green Door plays a boxer that Eve ends up having sex with at the party.

The People Vote ...

  • IMDB summary. IMDb voters score it 7.3/10 (statistically insignificant, based on vote count)
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a C+ as a hardcore classic. Even if the film were otherwise unwatchable, it would be worth it to see Chambers at her best in good light. Mitchell Brothers films were aimed at a couples market, even though they were hardcore, making this a good date film if your date is open minded.
