Trivia:
This movie was originally planned to be made in the early 1970s just after Jackie Collins' novel 'The Stud' was first published in 1969. Tony Curtis was earmarked to star as "The Stud" Tony Blake, both actor and character having the first-name Tony. However, this project did not eventuate and production of the movie wasn't green-lighted until 1977.See more »

I enjoyed it, Joan and Oliver make it better than it could have been., 11 November 2007
Author: tAYLOR_308 from United States

I enjoyed this movie, Joan Collins is the only actress that could pull it off. She has the ability to play these roles without letting it become silly, or needlessly pornographic. She has the charisma of a true golden era movie star, but her roles are daring, unique and push the envelope. She brings an energy that is so youthful to her roles; which is great in these movies and Dynasty where she is at an age where most women are no longer seen at all, never the less sexy and beautiful. She shows that there is life after you are mature, and she makes it look fun. The messages in the film are interesting; both the men and the women have their own angles on each other and what is happening, neither is really a victim. Infidelity and promiscuity are seen in all socioeconomic levels in society. From peasants to kings sex is happening and has happened. There are also consequences for each character but they happen and life goes on. Some people are put off by the sexuality of the film but Fontaine is a jets disco owner in the seventies, it fits the character.
