Movies That Fell Through the Cracks # 49


Speaking of Jack Wrangler's passing the other day reminded me also of this early straight film I had seen him in (albeit in what amounts to a cameo role). MISBEHAVIN' was a major 1978 Chuck Vincent XXX sex comedy release starring the once popular Leslie Bovee. As I recall it was never quite as amusing as this poster promised. (Perhaps I asked too much of my porn?) The plot--yes, they HAD plots in those days, vaguely defined as they sometimes were--is largely forgotten by me but something to do with impending nuptials and an angel figure and a devil figure each trying to influence the proceedings. Although I was only 19 and too young to be jaded, I nevertheless recall enjoying the poster more than the film. The poster with its almost MAD/Will Elder-like characters is signed "Weston." Does anyone know the artist?

I thought it looked more like Ron Embleton's work - no idea who "Weston" is, though.

Good catch! It does strongly resemble Embleton's work but I don't think it's nearly as good.

Good catch for you, too! I'd forgotten about Sonny Landham at all even though I live in Kentucky where he has run for Governor and most recently Senator!
