Storyline

A small carnival is in dire financial straits. Their show is attracting fewer and fewer paying customers, as their "attractions" are aging, out of shape and beset by internal feuds and bickering. One day a beautiful young woman shows up and suggests a way of attracting customers: put on a strip show, with her as the main attraction. Her act attracts customers in droves, but it turns out that the girl has her own agenda, and it isn't to help out the carnival. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Black humor and beautiful Sydne Rome
3 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's sad that it's difficult to find Sydne Rome in many films. She's a beautiful woman that moves with sensuous grace. I have only a copy of a copy of this rare film, and would love to have a DVD or even a good VHS copy. It's hard to find, and I suggest you watch it if you ever get a chance. Shelley Winters delivers as powerful performance as she did in "Mama, Bloody Mama". Sydne Rome appears with David Bowie in the 1979 film, "Just A Gigolo", and it's not easy to get either. She's also in "A Lucky Touch" with Roger Moore, and "At Last the 1948 Show" that was a series of comedy vignettes. She starred in the episode entitled "Sex With A Smile." Her filmography shows her to have been in a lot of German films.
