Trivia

Although producer Roger Corman was originally to be involved with this film, he pulled out before production began. However, after it was completed, the film's producer, Erwin C. Dietrich, nevertheless advertised it in Europe as a Roger Corman film. The matter eventually wound up in court and Dietrich was ordered to stop advertising it as a Corman film when Corman had nothing to do with it. However, the "damage" was done, and to this day many European film historians mistakenly include this in Corman's filmographies. See more »

Irresistible trash
15 December 2006 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this much more than I expected after the adverse comments of others. A 1970 film from Mr Dietrich about a groupie travelling across Europe with rock bands and hippies was never going to be high art and instead I certainly got what I hoped for. Splendidly lurid sexploitation featuring a lovely Ingrid Steeger who wears sexy clothes now and again but not too often. A surprisingly large amount of time is spent over the preparation and administration of various drugs and the music and musicians authentic enough. I don't know how terrible the dialogue is in the original but certainly the English dub is pretty bad and made worse because it seems to be spoken by a couple of ex public school types with no interest whatsoever in the project. The movie moves along nicely enough, doesn't outstay it's welcome and has one or too extraordinary moments. I was particularly surprised at first with the vigour of the Hell's Angels attack in the water and then astonished to see the naked girls riding off on the backs of two of the bikes. Real roads, in traffic, seemingly at speed. Don't think health & safety requirements would permit that today! Perhaps most surprising of all is that we actually get to see the DVD box cover scene with Ingrid nude upon the snowy mountain. Irresistible trash.
