Based upon the novel "Jord!" by Erland Kiøsterud about Jor, living in Copenhagen, trying to make a living as an artist. Meanwhile he has to live off his girlfriend Gerda's prostitution. Then Morgan turns up, creating trouble.
Dirty figuratively due to the jokes and nudity. Dirty literally because some of those rooms were NASTY! Allen Garfield shows that there was a time when he could lead a film adequately. He dresses like Darren McGavin did in 'Night Stalker.' Which began the same year I believe.
Garfield does an OK job here. He combines a 'go get 'em' attitude with typical human weakness. And it takes guts for a man that looks like him to do frontal nudity.
As P.I. flicks go, it's just normal. That's not a bad thing though. Some suspense but no real revelations.
And director Avildsen would later get an Oscar for 'Rocky.' Here's a good early one for his fans.
