The Tennis Lesson Reviews:

I now saw this at the Odeon Leicester Square as an opener for (?).Cannot remember the feature, but obviously "The Tennis Lesson" made an impression. 30 years later, I inputed the title, and guess what? Here is an entry.As the previous poster said, it was highly erotic. Thank you to director Steve Karp.As a side note, when you went to an Odeon in '77, you got commercials (good ones -cigs - booze), an opening short (such as the topics film), then more commercials, then the detail film. Plus, one side of theatre was smoking. How about that.


This is the most erotic non-x rated movie I have ever seen. A lady awakens in her bed and takes a shower then dresses for tennis. She walks across her estate to her personal tennis court and inserts a cassette. It is a deep sexy male voice that gives her a tennis lesson from her ball machine. The lesson becomes orgasmic!


I've never forgotten this short movie, though I had only seen it once back in the early seventies when it was the pre-feature short instead of the usual cartoon.The game "The Tennis Lesson" is superimposed over the pensive face of a pretty young girl waking up. She reaches over to search that her husband is already gone. The soft orchestral melody is reminiscent of a scenic landscape at dawn, but it builds slowly as she walks naked into the shower, dresses in a very sexy top and short skirt, and does a great makeup job. As she's ready to go out, presumably for a tennis lesson, you start to receive an concept what this is building to when she decides to take off her wedding ring before heading out the door.She walks across the landscaped gardens of her estate to a personal court, where her instructor awaits; a black box with an erect tube to open the tennis balls. It's named "The Prince". She flips on the switch, and the male voice starts "Lesson Five, Form and Control".The balls begin coming out regularly, and she returns them well, the machine is encouraging, "Hit though the ball, ...through the ball." though it is obviously just a tape. But at some point, it begins reacting to her swings, and even calls her "Mrs. Reynolds". That's when the massive breathing starts. It gets better from there, and the prolonged orgasmic sequence is awesome. My favourite part is the balls dribbling out slowly at the end.I don't remember what the detail film was that night 33 years ago.
