Storyline

Hollywood scrapyard owner Tony is invited by the owner of a strip club to take part in the heist of an armored car. At the man's establishment, Tony meets Sandy, who's stripping to make ends meet while she tries to get her career as an actress off the ground. Tony and Sandy fall in love, but Tony worries that Sandy will fall prey to the seedy side of Hollywood, and decides to take the hold-up job so that he can use his share to help Sandy. But in Hollywood, nothing is ever that easy. Written by Shannon Patrick Sullivan <shannon@mun.ca>

An honour and a pleasure
22 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I had the honour and pleasure to see miss. Rue McLanahan in one of her early pictures. she reminded me of Marilyn Monroe, she was sensuous, and sultry. i can't understand why she wasn't more successful in movies. Why she didn't win an award i do not know!!

She was very beautiful and very talented. She looked very young, even though she was over 30! This film is no longer available, which is a shame. It was very good.

Many people didn't see the film, but i was able to catch it years ago. I felt it could have been Rue's big break, but she didn't get noticed until she appeared on television in the 1970's. She is still talented and i enjoyed this film.
