Not bad for what it is
22 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Movie about a sweet young girl named June (Margaret Marquis) who doesn't realize her mom helps run an escort agency with sleazy Gregory Stone (Wheeler Oakman). The problem is she's madly in love with tall handsome Drake (Bob Kellard) who's investigating the escort agencies and Stone will do anything to stop him...

The acting is pretty bad all around (although Isabel La Mal as Snuggles is amusing), the story pretty unbelievable and the print I saw on TCM was in VERY poor shape (there were so many jumps in it I almost gave up watching a few times). Still even a pristine print can't really make this a good film. It's not bad but it's hardly good. For what it is (an exploitation film) it's not bad. There's a few scenes of the escort girls lounging around in their underwear and there's a quick and (for 1941) pretty explicit striptease. Only her top comes off but that was pretty risqué back then. It's watchable and somewhat amusingly dated--the rate for an escort girl back then was only $10.00! They don't have sex though unless you pay $20.00!!! An OK exploitation film for its day.
