The seventh volume in the series Forbidden Fruit: The Golden Age of the Exploitation Picture addresses the prickly problems of parenting. In Test Tube Babies, Cathy (Dorothy Duke) and George (William Thomason) seem like the perfect postwar American couple, but a medical deficiency deprives them of the children that will complete their happy home. Facing a future of childless debauchery (represented by an especially raucous adults-only house party, complete with female wrestling), they pay a visit to a fertility specialist, portrayed by deadpan exploitation legend Timothy Farrell, who proposes an unorthodox solution to their problems. J.D. Kendis’s Guilty Parents is one of the better-produced incarnations of the good-girl-gone-wrong cautionary tale, highlighted by a game of silhouette strip-tease at the wayward teens’ favorite roadhouse.


Blu-ray Extras Include:

Audio commentary for Test Tube Babies by Eric Schaefer, author of Bold! Daring! Shocking! True!: A History of Exploitation Films

Sex and Romance (1951), a marital education short film
