That Tender Touch focuses on the twisted break up of lesbian lovers Marsha (Bea Tompkins) and Terri (Sue Bernard) who share a contented life together before dissatisfaction invades their Southern California wood-paneled apartment and Terri runs off to have a normal suburban married life with Ken. But poor Marsha can't quite let go. When she shows up destitute on Ken and Terri's doorstep they agree to let her stay with them. Suddenly it seems every female in the neighborhood is hot for Marsha - the neighbor lady and her precocious teenage daughter and the sexy British maid. But Marsha only has eyes for Terri.
Described by Variety as "One more variation on the Lesbian thing," this wildly entertaining melodrama stars minor cult figure Sue Bernard as Terri (Bernard was Playboy's Miss December 1966 and co-star of the Russ Meyer classic Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!). Bea Tompkins plays the lesbian ex-lover and babe-magnet, Marsha.
