Abigail Leslie is Back in Town was the brainchild of prolific (200-plus titles!) sexploitation director Joe Sarno. In the tradition of Durrenmatt's The Visit, a young woman is driven from a small town in disgrace after a messy extramarital affair. When she returns, she goes the "Harper Valley PTA" route, proving that her tormentors are no better than she. Joe Sarno insists that it's based on a true story. Originally the title was Abagail Leslie is Back in Town, indicating that someone in the publicity department needed a spell-checker.
