Audience Reviews for The Telephone Book
An oversexed girl encounters stag film producers, perverts and lesbian seductresses as she searches Manhattan for the obscene phone caller who has stolen her heart. This is sexploitation comedy as designed by the NYC art scene (Warhol Superstar Ultra Violet shows up as the "whip woman"). It bogs down in the middle, but stay until the end for an explicit, surreal cartoon featuring a woman making love to a skyscraper and other obscene sights that have to be seen to be believed.
This obscure little gem looks like it may have been the inspiration for later film classics, or at the very least, a precursor. This is a bizarre, sexy, black and white (for the most part) comedy that embraced the sexual freedom of the time and threw it up on the screen. I found it interesting that Jill Clayburgh had a role in this. Must have been before she hit the big time.
