The Film
A CIA agent is looking for a man to donate his seed so she can become pregant. She finds her willing donor in the senator. The senator is married, of course so the stage is set for all sorts of sexual nonsense and jealously and the Feds are oblivious to it all.

MARILYN AND THE SENATOR is a simple enough plot that could be great as it is packed full of sex and is genuinely funny. It is simply too damn long to keep the viewers undivided attention for a movie such as this. If this was 85-90 minutes we'd be good to go but add in another 40 minutes and it drags. It doesn't kill the movie, you'll just find yourself using the fast forward button on occasion. 

The Audio & Video
Vinegar Syndrome has done a rather nice job on the anamorphic widescreen transfer of the film, preserving its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio. The source material was 35mm camera negatives and they've been kept clean and in good condition. The audio track is good as well as it is free of any distracting background noise such as hissing or crackling.

The Extras
An audio commentary track with William Margold and a theatrical trailer are included!

The Bottom Line
Presented on DVD for the first time in its full XXX uncut form, MARILYN AND THE SENATOR provides enough sex, story and even the occasional laugh to satisfy the horndog in all of us.
