My Third Wife, George (1968) is an exploitation comedy made in Florida.
It starts with a Mama's boy spying on the naked upstairs maid (Regina Koo).
Mama made short work of that, returning him to his room with her cane in a most
uncomfortable place. The remainder of the film is narrated by the boy, now grown
into a man looking back on his life. We see him go into a bar after mama died. He is lonesome, and begins to tell his story in flashback.
His first real experience was with three "hippie girls" who took turns with
him after getting him high. He appreciated it, but he had little in common with
them. Still lonesome, he hired a housekeeper, and ended up marrying her, but she
had flings with a swimming coach and a gorilla impersonator, and that ended
that. He next wife was trying to catch him doing something that would cause her
to win a big divorce settlement. When the detective she hired couldn't find
anything, he took advantage of a stenographer's visit to force indiscretions at
Then there is his third spouse, George, who doesn't seem to be at all sexual.
The entire film plays out tongue-in-cheek, and is rather silly. Ralph is
supposedly getting increasingly drunk as his story goes on, making him harder
and harder to listen to. The humor, intentional and unintentional, far outweighs
the eroticism, but I did get the occasional smile from this one. It also has a
fitting twist at the end.
