We’re all about the Bible movies here at FilmChat, but there are plenty of films within the genre that we haven’t seen yet. Case in point: The Private Lives of Adam and Eve, a sexploitation flick co-directed by Mickey Rooney and Albert Zugsmith in 1960.

I don’t think I’ll be making time to see this movie any time soon, but Joe Dante, director of Gremlins and curator of the Trailers From Hell website, posted a new video recently in which he discusses the film. Watch it here, if you’re curious:

The film — which, as you can see, stars Rooney as the Devil and Mamie Van Doren as Eve, and also co-stars Mel Tormé, Tuesday Weld and Paul Anka — isn’t too hard to find online, but I’ll refrain from posting it here until I’ve had a chance to vet it.

Which, like I say, probably won’t be any time soon.
