The Swinger is a very amusing original screen comedy which satirizes nudie books and magazines. The colorful, tuneful George Sidney production utilizes outstanding post-production skills to enhance impact of hip scripting and good performances.

Ann-Margret’s best screen work derives from Sidney’s direction, which herein spotlights her singing-dancing talents. She is an aspiring mag writer who, unable to sell straight material, fakes her autobiog in the form of a mish-mash of lurid paperback plots. Tony Franciosa, the editor, swallows the bait and tries to reform her, while nudie mag publisher Robert Coote seeks to exploit the gal.

A two-minute terp scene by Ann-Margret, to a rhythmic title tune by Andre and Dory Previn, precedes main title. Pic then opens with a hilarious tour of L.A., featuring non-sequitur narration by Coote to some jazzy picture editing. David Winters choreographed the terp sequences, one of which is a rather sexy bit in which Ann-Margret, in a fake orgy, rolls about on canvas with her body covered with paint.
