LOVE ME LIKE I DO (1970)
Sharon is a seemingly contented suburban wife with a nice husband, house and family, until she discovers that her husband is cheating on her with the neighborhood nympho.
Handsome and muscular 6’3″ hunk Peter Carpenter hailed from Oakland, California. Of Spanish and Italian descent, Carpenter was part of the Corbelli family who lived in the East Bay area and was raised in the Catholic faith (the name of his production company Jude Productions was done in tribute to St. Jude Thaddeus, who’s the Catholic patron saint of hope and impossible causes as well as was Carpenter’s confirmation name). Peter was involved in a business that made men’s slacks prior to landing his first film role as a Mountie in Russ Meyer‘s Vixen! (1968) after Meyer saw a photo of Carpenter with a girlfriend who had auditioned for a role in the movie. Peter went on to play a lead role in this obscure exploitation melodrama Love Me Like I Do (1970). Carpenter subsequently formed a partnership with producer Chris Marconi to make the gloriously lurid drive-in double whammy of Blood Mania (1970) and Point of Terror (1971), which Carpenter not only starred in, but also co-produced and wrote the stories for. (Both of these movies were picked up for theatrical release by the legendary exploitation outfit Crown International Pictures.) Peter was planning on making another film called “Middle of Midnite” when he died quite suddenly under still unresolved and mysterious circumstances sometime in the early 1970’s.
