In the summer of 1979, Madonna penned a three-page letter to director Stephen Jon Lewicki in response to a newspaper ad seeking a female to play the lead in the film. Later, when photostats of the letter surfaced for public viewing, it struck many as bizarre that the then-21-year-old Madonna was already lying about her age, listing her year of birth as 1959 - a year after her actual birthday in 1958.

This 'low budget' movie is awful in every way. The sound is awful and the picture ain't all that great. I'm sure Madonna has been dreading the day when this thing gets dug up from it's grave I mean who saw it the first time round? No one maybe. This obviously wasn't meant for a commercial cinematic release, but I reckon I can make home movies better than this. The plot requires a surprisingly innocent looking Madonna playing a young dominatrix (WHAT??? MADONNA???!!!), who is raped in some toilet at a diner. She gets the attacker back by getting her friends to perform satanic sexual acts on him. Madonna stripped off, flaunted her body and did everything that she did again later on circa 1990-1992 and beyond. History repeats itself I guess. It showed that Madonna really didn't have any natural talent for acting itself and should have stayed away from it in the future.
