Storyline

Marcia, a sexy bucolic orphan, hitch-hikes to the city to meet up with her sister, who has promised her a job at the roadhouse where she works as a hostess. She has no qualms about sleeping with her driver in order to be safeguarded to her destination. Once she arrives, she discovers that her sister has recently been violently murdered -- in a stangulation by garter belt. Marcia takes her sister's job in order to go undercover in finding the murderer. She thus imperils her own life while making discoveries about her sister's former lifestyle and the seamy antics of the local civic leaders. Written by GoblinHairedGuy

Eccentric Sarno murder mystery
23 December 2003 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

Joe Sarno does a who-dunnit -- the mind boggles! Well maybe not so much, since his normal tactic as a screenwriter is to gradually reveal hidden relationships and cruel intentions through discrete dialog scenes and bedroom liaisons. Here given slightly more resources than usual, Sarno probably decided to try something new -- certainly the mise-en-scene is much richer than in his more minimally budgeted pictures. Every once in a while, his usual melodramatic pattern is unexpectedly jarred by splashings of film noirish devices, such as a point-of-view shot of the murderer spying on the protagonist from a darkened alcove. Unfortunately, like Robert Altman, Sarno doesn't really know how to cut for action, and as a murder-mystery, the show is less than successful. His take on the hypocrisy of bourgeois society and the crude world of sexual politics, however, is as riveting as ever, while the nudie scenes are intentionally crass and artless.
