When I saw this movie in 1968, it was in one of those cavernous old-time movie houses on 42nd Street in NYC--an area known as "The Deuce." The beautiful black and white photography, the nudity, the violence and some outstanding performances made this an unforgettable experience. Seeing a movie like this on a real movie screen made all the difference in conveying its power and beauty, rather than watching this on a small TV screen. Virginia Gordon was a real real stand-out with her classy looks but sensual face. The story line, too, was dynamic and it's a tragedy that many of these "soft-core" independent films have been lumped together as "garbage." Just take a look at the fabulous "Scream of the Butterfly," that's become a cult classic because of its outstanding black and white photography, story, director and casting.
I just recently saw THE PICK-UP by the same creative team as this film and was quite impressed with that film. Though this film is still better than most in its disreputable genre, it is still disappointing when viewed up against some of Frost's other films of the period. The most original element to this film is when this black & white movie suddenly comes into color when the lead character takes LSD. Just when you expect this movie to come to life with some trippy visuals or freak-out scenes, all we get is a little murder and extortion. What a wasted opportunity!
