Trivia

Sam J. Jones' bare-chested torture, in which he's spreadeagled beneath a cluster of dangling, about-to-drop spears, may have been inspired by a similar ordeal inflicted on Mark Forest in the 1963 movie, Goliath and the Sins of Babylon (1963). See more »

Quotes

The Leopard Queen: [discussing male prisoners] Naturally I'll have to punish them. Not quite sure how. Perhaps I could cut something off.
Jane: You can't possibly cut those off.
The Leopard Queen: Why not? They do it to horses.

stupid but good
6 February 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Jane was a very popular British comic strip that ran through the war years. Churchill hated it and wanted it banned, but it was too popular. The artist used to use the strip to make political points, and whenever it would be getting too dry for the readers, Jane would somehow lose her clothes.

The film version is played for camp, and brilliantly so by Kristen Hughes, Sam Jones (who also conveniently loses his clothes a few times in a nod to a later age), Maud Adams, and Elsa O'Toole as the Leopard Queen.

Yes, it goes over the top - it's meant to. Get giggly with a few friends and watch it.
