"Maybe we do play too much bridge", 19 December 2016
Author: msroz from United States

"The Babysitter" (1969) has middle-aged George E. Carey having an affair with babysitter Patricia Wymer because his wife Anne Bellamy has lost interest in sex and prefers to play bridge. Wymer's character is like "Lolita", part little girl, part woman, part wanting to have fun, and part all too grown-up when it comes to males. Carey's a staff prosecutor who's got a murder case on his plate, a biker, and the murderer's girl friend has two different ways of getting to Carey.

This is a late noir, at the tail end of the 60s. It's a low budget film. The movie has a significant amount of nudity. The lovemaking is done tastefully and tenderly but also quite realistically, even a lesbian scene between Carey's daughter and her lover. There is the exploitation element present but the strong story overrules it. The dialog is insightful and realistic much of the time, down to earth and not pretentious. This is a big plus. The story itself has good tension and builds up to a big suspense point. The resolution is well-handled. It perhaps has one slow sequence near the halfway mark, as films often do.

The biggest negative in the film is that much of the acting is amateurish or stilted; not enough to wreck the show, however, but enough to be noticeable. The editing sometimes is very basic, such as some inter-cutting of two different locales.

I like the film overall. It hits themes of young girls maturing and a variety of issues within marriage and sexual relationships. Even the relationships involving Carey's daughter and the biker's girl friend are brought out in the screenplay.
