The second Hal Ashby film on this list (the first being HAROLD AND MAUDE), this anti-war film features a pretty intense love-making scene between a conservative military wife (Jane Fonda) and her lover (Jon Voight), a Vietnam vet who was recently paralyzed from the waist down in battle. What begins as totally-naked, woman-on-top frottage ends in orgasmic cunnilingus — a first for Fonda’s character (and probably for most movie-goers at the time).
