A fossilized turd from the late 70's, but with an interesting cast
17 June 2010 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This is the bizarre tale of a small-town virgin (Linda Theel)who gets gang-raped while on a date AND loses her entire family in a tragic car accident soon after. "Eight years later" according to the titles (why it has to be eight years later, I don't know), she's become a prostitute in big, bad LA, where she's menaced by both brutal pimps and greedy madams, and gets hooked up with a hot-headed, violence-prone boyfriend (Tom Baker).

I like to dig up obscure movies from the 70's. Sometimes I find a lost gem, but a lot of times I find a fossilized turd (although even these at least don't smell as bad as some of the freshly-laid turds you might find watching newly released movies). This is definitely a fossilized turd, but it's kind of fascinating nevertheless. I always wonder how films like this, so far out of the accepted cinematic universe, manage to ever get made at all.

This one certainly has an interesting cast. Popular 70,s character actor Alan Garfield plays an amoral street criminal called "the Preacher" because he often cons people with a false preacher routine. Tom Baker (not to be confused with the more famous British thesp.) was a one-time Warhol actor and drinking buddy of Jim Morrison (Michael Madsen's character in "The Doors" was loosely based on him). Perhaps the strangest appearance though is by Donna Wilkes in a long topless dancing and coke-fueled lesbian scene/cameo. Not only had she just appeared in the innocuous TV sitcom "Hello, Larry", but in 1978 she had a pretty important part in the mega-blockbuster "Jaws 2" (as the tempting cutie who almost gets Chief Brody's son eaten by a shark after she persuades him to go sailing). If this movie was really made AFTER "Jaws 2" as the IMDb info. says, she must have had the worst agent in the world. (And, of course, she would also go on to play a memorable hooker herself a few years later in the New World semi-cult classic "Angel").

I can't in good conscious recommend this, but if you're fascinated by fossilized turds from the 70's . . .
