Elderly Scott kills himself after a heart attack wrecks his body, but then comes back as a ghost and convinces his loving young hot wife Kate to pick and kill a young man in order for Scott to possess his body and be with her again.
Writer/director John Derek’s film featuring his naked wife Bo Derek was one of the worst films ever made. The film’s unlikely title referred to ghosts who couldn’t consummate their love through sex. The film received nine Razzie nominations and four wins, including Worst Picture, Worst Actress (Bo Derek), Worst Director (John Derek), and Worst Supporting Actor (Donald Trump in a cameo as Himself).
The two main characters, a married couple who lived on a Wyoming ranch together, were:
Katie O’Dare Scott (Bo Derek)
Scott (Anthony Quinn), her older husband
Scott was ailing from a weak heart, but was too old to have a heart transplant. When he couldn’t perform in bed with Katie, he committed suicide with a shotgun blast to his own head. In a hellish afterlife, Scott met an Angel of Death (Julie Newmar) who told him that he could watch his wife’s suffering and anguish for awhile. She was the only one who could see and hear her dead husband.
Katie went to a tropical isle for a vacation, where in a memorable scene, she stripped off her purplish-blue one-piece swim suit and laid down on the sand, while complaining to the deceased Scott:
Katie: “You’re not my man, you’re my ghost!”
Scott: “So you do believe I’m a ghost, hah?!”
Katie: “What else could you be? I mean, look at you.”
Scott: “Honey, there are stories about ghosts that come back in another body.”
Katie: “Oh, Jesus God, don’t do that to me! Oh God, don’t do that!”
Scott: “Just think about it.”
Katie: “In another body? You mean you’d take another body. And with this body, you’d make love to me?”
Scott: “You bet I would – and if it’s possible, I…”
Katie: “I don’t know, Scott. That’s kinky stuff. We’ve never been kinky.”
Scott: “But honey, we could get married again. I mean, wouldn’t it be wonderful?”
Katie: “What would you look like?…That’s important. Would you be young?”
In another scene while she was bathing in a jacuzzi, and was informed by Scott that she was now chairman of the board of his company (and worth two billion dollars), she told Scott: “Why don’t you go get a body and ravish me, just like the old days. I’ll wait right here.” Eventually, her wish came true as she was bedded down by Scott who had possessed the body of womanizing Fausto Garibaldi (Leo Damian) when he conveniently drowned. [Earlier, she had proposed the idea to him: “My dead husband wants to possess your body.”] As she was taken by him, she spoke:
“He carries me to my bed and looks deeply into my eyes, and says, don’t be afraid Katie.”
