Inspired by the controversial book of the same name, by Dr. David Rueben, Allen addresses a variety of “helpful” questions (“What is Sodomy?” “What Happens During Ejaculation?”) through a series of outrageous vignettes. Featuring performances from Gene Wilder, Burt Reynolds and Louise Lasser, Everything You Always Wanted to Know… is the ultimate parody of the popular pseudo-science that emerged during the sexual revolution.
dir. James Broughton, US, 1968, 16mm, 20 min.
