Love with the Proper Stranger

What are two individualistic, highly motivated movie stars supposed to do when faced with an unimaginative studio system eager to misuse their talents? Natalie Wood and Steve McQueen collaborate with a great writer, director and producer for an urban romance with an eye on the sexual double standard. It’s a hybrid production: a gritty drama that’s also a calculated career move.

DVD Review – Helga, She Wolf of Stilberg (1978)

Helga, She Wolf of Stilberg, 1978.

Directed by Patrice Rhomm.

Starring Patrizia Gori, Malisa Longo, Richard Allan, Dominique Aveline, and Jacques Marbeuf.

Synopsis:

A sadistic female prison warden’s latest inmate is the daughter of her government’s political enemy.

The second release from new imprint label Maison Rouge, Helga, She Wolf of Stilberg is a French title that veers a bit close to Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS, possibly the best and certainly one of the most infamous Naziploitation movies to have crawled its way out of the prison slop tray. But while for all intents and purposes Helga, She Wolf of Stilberg is a straight lift of the Ilsa movies it does hold back on some of the grimier traits of those films, which makes it at once both a little easier to watch and also frustratingly bland in places when it could have been a whole lot more.
