Synopsis by Mark Deming
A teenager develops a ravenous appetite for physical love in this vintage sexploitation drama. Marie (Julie Ames) is a sixteen-year-old girl whose sexual curiosity goes into overdrive when she comes home one evening to discover her parents making love with no small enthusiasm. The next day, Marie's third cousin Phil (Steve White) stops by to help with her French homework, and Marie seduces him. Soon Marie and Phil are cutting class on a regular basis for assignations in cheap motels and in the woods; while Phil wants to get married, Marie isn't interested and insists cousins aren't allowed to wed. Meanwhile, Marie's father is having an affair with his secretary and is rarely seen at home, while his wife Lily (Ann Heath) retaliates by picking up strange men at cocktail lounges. Lily becomes aware of Marie's budding nymphomania when the teenager beds one of Lily's recent conquests, but Marie's recklessness catches up with her when she discovers she's pregnant. Alley Tramp was directed by legendary exploitation auteur Herschell Gordon Lewis, though for some reason the entire cast and crew were given French pseudonyms, with Lewis credited as Armand Parys.
