"The Swinger" concerns good girl journalist Kelly Olsson (Ann-Margret's real last name) who wants to be published in "Girl-lure" men's magazine, and she wants her story published, not her photo. She writes a lurid expose of a wild swinger girl and tells the horny editor the girl in the story is her, to try to get it printed. So, she has to spend the rest of the movie convincing the Girl-lure staff she is for real. What's more, we've got an opening montage of Ann-Margret singing the title song and jumping on a trampoline wearing a black catsuit, turning on the sex appeal full force. We've got a house she lives in with a bunch of beatniks including the dance group billed in the opening credits as the "Swinger's Dozen" who spend their time doing choreographed dance routines in the living room, and when Ann-Margret passes through, she just has to join in and go-go dance. For the guys, we have Ann-Margret covered in paint and used as a human paintbrush by a bunch of beatniks wearing jungle loin clothes. We have Edith Head doing the absolutely to-die-for 60's costumes. We have Ann-Margret wearing a different outrageous 60's hair extension/style in almost every scene.
