“Bolero” Review

Bolero: Directed by John Derek. With Bo Derek, George Kennedy, Andrea Occhipinti, Ana Obregón. Set in the 1920s, a young woman sets out to lose her virginity. Her mission leads her to a Moroccan sheikh and a Spanish bullfighter.

I watched a documentary (or two!) about the Cannon Group and this movie came up as something that should have worked well for them financially but didn’t end up doing as well as they had hoped. My interest was peaked because I’m familiar with Bo Derek’s work from this time period and knew that she was both a great actor and was perfectly fine with being naked on screen. Bolero offers plenty of nudity, some of it titillating and some of it just casual male gaze fare, but the story itself is whimsical, if not entirely nonsensical. It was an enjoyable experience but I can see why it didn’t have wider appeal.
