Allen is a young hood who plans the seduction of beautiful housewife Manx, so his homosexual friend, Oates, can sleep with a woman for the first time. Presented in a slow, mannered style, this seduction takes up the majority of the picture. The last 20 minutes of the film, however, erupt

with a powerful confrontation between Allen and Oates, climaxing with the still-virginal Oates being drowned in a pool. Made on a budget of $60,000, PRIVATE PROPERTY was directed and scripted by Leslie Stevens, who also gave his wife the starring role. Although he was the the creator of TV's "The

Outer Limits" and penned Arthur Penn's THE LEFT HANDED GUN, Stevens never assumed the major role in the American New Wave that was predicted for him. PRIVATE PROPERTY was sharply photographed by veteran cameraman Ted McCord, who would later recieve an Oscar nomination for his work on THE SOUND OF

MUSIC.
