Rosemary Bow is breathtaking
28 February 2002 | by (North West USA) – See all my reviews

After seeing The Golden Mistress, I can not understand why she did not become a really big star!

The story line is totally politically incorrect but the movie is a vehicle to show the photogenic actress in various stages of undress.

Really, worth a viewing.
