Can you believe that a deadbeat company called Bingo marketed this rare blaxploiter as an "action" film, and gave a dreadful sounding re-title called BLACK GAUNTLET? Wherever you can find it, don't set your expectations too high. It isn't a movie about damsels in distress, it's about a lady who struggles hard and helpless up the ladder to press garments and become a Hollywood success story in making filthy films. Our "starlet" knocks the movie producer dead by reciting a seductive line from the script, and upsettingly ditches him for good. This wouldn't be such a drag if this weren't about a chick taking her clothes off down to the undies, or a bunch of topless gals who would love to see you stare. I can stand the lady wanting to be a serious movie star, but enough sex and nudity steals the show. Rare movies are worth a look, but only if you can withstand the faulty packaging companies make to lure customers into their trap full of false promises. Noteworthy in a list of "where are they now?" directors is Chris Munger, known for the creepy-crawly classic chiller KISS OF THE TARANTULA.
