The Baby Maker (1970) is a film directed and co-written by James Bridges and released by Twentieth Century Fox.

Plot[edit]

Barbara Hershey portrays a flower child who is hired to have the baby of a middle-class couple (Collin Wilcox-Horne and Sam Groom).

The film exposes the clash of values between Hershey, along with her boyfriend (Scott Glenn), and the couple. It also deals with the emotional turmoil all four characters go through.

Reception[edit]

Criticizing the directing and writing of James Bridges, critic Shirley Rigby said of the "bizarre" film, "Only the performances in the film save it from being a total travesty." Rigby went on to say, "Barbara Hershey is a great little actress, much, much more than just another pretty face."[1]
