THE TEACHER

year: 1974 cast: Angel Tompkins, Jay North, Anthony James rating: ***
Blond sexpot Angel Tompkins is a thirty-year-old teacher. Sexy and persuasive, she hangs around with teenager Jay North, who played Dennis the Menace on the iconic sitcom.

The main problem is the relationship isn't very taboo since North, with a receding hairline and ultra casual manner, seems about twenty-seven. But the plot has little to do with the teacher/student tryst, which in itself isn’t very entertaining – other than the fact Tompkins is extremely gorgeous and sexy (reminiscent of future starlet Cindy Morgan of TRON fame).
The awesomely villainous Anthony James as Ralph Gordon
It’s the lanky freak Anthony James, known for playing antagonist roles, that keeps the story going. With a habit of stalking the teacher as she lays out on her boat, he winds up accusing North of killing his brother in an intense scene in the film’s opening.

Further in, as teacher teaches her student the ways of love, the knife-wielding James is always around the corner – making this a better than average low budget exploitation with a real edge.

And although the ending, as Tomkins, North and James returns to the construction tower from the prologue, goes a bit too long, the metronomic funky soundtrack is very cool.
