Surprisingly good for it's genre!
4 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

No surprise that this review is from another country from the Commonwealth (Canada). This was shown on Cable T.V. from a channel that shows everything from Ben Hur to films like this one. I was surprised by two things: the plentiful nudity, which seemed excessive for 1974 and also the politically correct ending. Still, this was a good watch, for the cast is very attractive, the characters are all flawed but likeable, and it was well made. Indeed, Jill Damas is a knockout, and she can certainly slap people in the face with panache.
