"The Female Bunch", filmed at Spahn Ranch
video
"The Female Bunch" tells the tale of five women who live on a ranch with no men.  Russ Tamblyn can be seen having his face branded before being impaled with a pitchfork; there are scenes of lesbianism and drug use; and a rather haggard Lon Chaney, Jr. appears as a ranch-hand in his final role before his death in 1973.  One of the strangest films directed by cult filmmaker Al Adamson (Satan's Sadists), this low-budget oddity was shot at the Spahn Movie Ranch at the time that it was occupied by the Manson Family.

I've got a few 'feelers" out on this flick... i.e.,.. I'm trying to get a copy uploaded for everyone.

We'll see what surfaces...

The footage looks absolutely horrible to me (the movie probably sucks)... but, as always... curiousity kills the cat.

Quite interesting actually to me

I remember seeing the advertisements for this movie back when it came out. And it looked cheesy even back then. LOL.

It looks interesting to me too.

They were playing hardball back in the 60's.

watched some of the whole film, looks like the film-maker didn't reach far for names: Sandy, Sadie, wasn't Denise Susan's middle name, and there's Sharon too...
