MAUREEN MCCORMICK IN GARY GRAVER'S 'TEXAS LIGHTNING'

Maureen McCormick in Texas Lighting YEAR: 1981
Exploitation cinematographer turned director Gary Graver's meandering yet strangely entertaining, voyeuristic mess about three rambunctious drunken men who go hunting, one of them, Cameron Mitchell, bringing his passive son, Cameron Mitchell Jr. aka Channing Mitchell...

Along the way he meets sexy bartender Maureen McCormick (Marcia from THE BRADY BUNCH) who, smoking in a dark tavern, has a kind of sexy white trash Noir going on, and it's nice to see her here, and sultry, sinful. Eventually, two of the drunks barge in, and one guy played by character-actor Peter Jason... whose trailer trash girlfriend back home, Danone Camden, is way too hot for him: until you know her real nature... attacks, and its here the film becomes what Mr. Graver knows best, pure exploitation: added to be Marcia Brady getting raped.

Channing Mitchell and Maureen McCormick
From the scant desert hunting grounds to the tavern to any and every location, it's all filmed like a sort of deranged documentary of human garbage...

Not a character-study, but a demented crash course of detestable characters. So when the suddenly not-so-passive son gets his own style of revenge against his dad and those fat drunks in the desert, there's finally a resemblance to an actual movie, which TEXAS LIGHTING is far from being, or even wanting to.
