Sexploitation at its tacky best and worst, The Runaway featured a young Gilda Texter, perhaps best known for her work as a Hollywood costume and wardrobe designer.

I hardly call that much in the way of sexploitation. That is the kind of movie straight men love to see. I have known very few straight males where this isn't one of their greatest fantasies.

And I can tell you without having seen it that there is no doubt she dies in the end. LOL

I love this bit:

PLEASE NOTE: If you are shocked or embarrassed by total nudity and sexual activity, you are urged NOT to attend.

We need more Life Warnings like that these days.

REALLY? This is what we're talking about the day after the biggest thing to happen to the grassroots LGBT movement since the March on Washington? Are you kidding?

I think it interesting that when the lobby cards issued for this film show two women in bed, the older woman is kind of creepy looking. However, a photo still of the movie showing two women about to touch lips appears tender.

I'm not sure whether it says something about the difference between lobby cards and movie stills. Maybe I am just reading too much into this.
