The scene you’re looking for, that is to say this one,

… begins at 04:15. She stays in that outfit for about six minutes.

Also in the same collection, if you need a few guffaws, is Satan’s School For Girls (1973, made for TV) – with Pamela Franklin, Cheryl Ladd and Kate Jackson. Roy Thinnes (of The Invaders fame) plays Satan. Nobody gets naked.

    1. Certainly did. Actually wet t-shirts were commonly used in films before The Deep instead of full toplessness. Putting nudity in was pretty new for Hollywood at the time and they went pretty conservative at first with see thru tops and pictures on walls.

      The Bisset scene just went viral to put in modern terms. After that, wet t-shirt contests became all the rage. As is typical for US media, Bisset was under quite an attack for that scene. I remember her saying they had no idea it would look like that like she had to apologize for it. If it was a European movie, no one would have said anything. To this day, I don’t know if I have ever seen one actor be attacked for not having a shirt on in a scene no matter how unnecessary.

  1. Regarding “Satan’s School for Girls.” The film has been named as one of the most memorable television movies of the 1970s per Wikipedia.

    1. That’s tantamount to saying that Marv Throneberry was one of the most memorable players on the 1962 Mets.

      There were only a few TV movies in that era that were memorable. The top ones on my list were Brian’s Song, The Missiles of October, Love Among the Ruins, The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, Evil Roy Slade, Michael Mann’s The Jericho Mile, Jim Henson’s Emmet Otter, and Spielberg’s Duel. Maybe Salem’s Lot.

      After that it’s about a hundred-way tie for the next spot. I suppose SSFG is in that group. The one with Elizabeth Montgomery as Lizzie Borden was also in that second tier, as was the Bubble Boy movie with Travolta.

      I think the Waltons (The Homecoming), The Night Stalker, Harry O (Such Dust as Dreams Are Made On and Smile Jenny, You’re Dead), Then Came Bronson, and The 6 Million Dollar Man were originally TV movies as well, so I guess we have to say that they were memorable enough to inspire a series that we all remember.

      If we can include foreign TV, then Spielberg or Brian’s Song would absolutely have to give up the top spot to the legendary Russian film, The Irony of Fate. Pretty much every Russian alive today has seen it at least ten times and can sing all the songs. It is still played every December 31 and January 1. In terms of memorability, it’s the Russian equivalent of It’s a Wonderful Life.

      Also in the foreign category, I can’t fail to mention The Rutles.

      I’m talking about memorability here, not quality. Some of the ones I mentioned were good movies. Others were not. I think SSFG is not only less memorable than the others I mentioned, but is probably the weakest as well. (Aaron Spelling. ‘Nuff said.)

      1. As a young adolescent naturally I was drawn to the scary ones, like Trilogy of Terror, The Norliss Tapes, and even the ultimate absurdity that was Killdozer. At least in terms of sheer quantity, the early-to-mid-Seventies were the golden age of made-for-TV movies, until they were supplanted by the equally ubiquitous week-long miniseries. Perhaps the last big hurrah in the history of network TV movies was 1983’s The Day After, although if somebody has other suggestions let’s hear ’em.

        1. The Brits definitely had it better TV movie-wise: directors like Mike Leigh & Stephen Frears started out there, & The Stone Tape is a great 70’s paranormal one
          The Execution of Private Slovik, with Martin Sheen & Ned Beatty, was a phenomenal TV movie – award caliber acting
