road trip searching for backers for their movies often from drivein theater owners when they met the Woolner brothers Lawrence Bernard and David who had opened New Orleans first drivein theaters Looking to get into the production business Corman said the brothers agreed to help finance Swamp Women for Corman who returned to Louisiana with his cast and crew for the production 31 The film was shot on location in Louisiana4 and was shot in either 10 or 22 days depending on the source 1 The actors had to perform their own stunts including close calls with snakes falling out of trees with only a stuntman to catch an actress and walking through the muck and mire 1 Staff were housed in an abandoned motel with little or not hot water and one bed that collapsed while an actress was sleeping on it Ed Nelson later of Peyton Place fame stated that the shoot was difficult hot and humid with none of the comforts of a studio production Still Nelson who was unemployed and stuck in at the abandoned motel became a gofer for the crew eventually earning the bit part of a cop Based on his behind the scenes help and his role he would go on to appear in about 15 Corman productions 5 Receptionedit While called weak filler exploitation fare by Variety they cited that Cormans full use of the bayou was a plus The Monthly Film Bulletin agreed liking the setting of the film in the swamps as giving a cliched story a new aspect A Swamp With A View 1 However the Los Angeles Examiner found the movie to be bogged down in cliche and apathy The CEA Film Report found both the swamp setting and the footage of Mardi Gras to be a positive but found the movie as a whole uneventful 1 The film was listed in the 1978 book The Fifty Worst Films of All Time 6 Home releasesedit The movie
