If you are looking for examples of how bad some films were in the early 1970s, you would be hard-pressed to find a better example than this Grade B soft porn flick. In truth, Grade B might be giving it too much credit.
Allan Goorwitz, who later changed his last name to "Garfield," is the slobby-looking, garbage-mouth detective in this sleazy film about. a man who was in a porno film and now the babes in the picture are blackmailing him. Mostly, this films is about "Jake Masters" (Goorwitz) just making a lot of classless jokes about sex. It even features a scene involving necrophilia - not exactly a nice topic. Neither is it pleasant to see this actor naked. In fact, it's downright disgusting.
The movie was produced by a company - Troma - which was famous for this kind of pushing-the-envelope low budget films. I bought the video because it was cheap and it had a ton of great reviews on the back cover. I didn't make either mistake a second time, regarding my purchase of VHS tapes.
Also, this is a film which garnered notice because of its shock value back in 1971 but would be looked at today by most viewers as, frankly, boring and too talky. Much of the humor in here also had more effect 35 years ago than it does today.
