Trivia

The movie was made and released about twenty-three years after the first version of the film's source novel, No Orchids for Miss Blandish (1948), which had been filmed under the book's actual title, had been made and released in 1948. That picture was the first ever filmed adaptation of a written work by author James Hadley Chase. Neither film version used Chase's original ending. See more »

cynical, complex, entertaining....
17 June 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

a better Patty Hearst movie than the ones actually made about Patty Hearst. not quite up there with the likes of Bonnie and Clyde and Thieves Like Us, but definitely worth seeing as an example of the 1970's ambivalence about anti-social characters and crime. the reviews make quite a big deal about the violence but you will hardly notice it--a great deal of shooting, some of that orange glop they used in the 1970s, but hardly emotionally wrenching like, say, The Wild Bunch or Texas Chainsaw Massacre...great performance by Scott Wilson who shows up on TV a lot these days.
