Strong Fields performance in nasty film
29 October 2010 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

NICCOLE...THE STORY OF 'O' has an uninhibited, impressive performance by Suzanne Fields in the title role, but should have been a much better, nay breakthrough porn film. It's obviously required viewing for s&m enthusiasts anyway.

Film beat to the punch by several years the official, and softcore version starring Corinne Clery and is truer to its admittedly stolen source material.

Nasty opening scene has Sheldon Lee as Jean chewing up the scenery as a really rotten fellow humping in a threesome until the girl dies suddenly of a heart attack. Not to worry, he laughs maniacally and has sex with her corpse, necrophilia being an interesting addition to the already out-there Pauline Réage novel contents.

He must now find a replacement girl for Sir William "to own", and Suzanne Fields as Niccole fits the bill. The titled gentleman, who is anything but a gentleman, assigns Madame Claudine to give Niccole 6 weeks of training for him at his mansion Ravenna. Involved is all manner of torture, deprivation and humiliation, including Claudine's use of a handy strap-on dildo, with the emphasis on bondage via rope, chain, what have you. A sign that Fields/Niccole is up to snuff is that when the pain gets really excruciating, instead of asking for relief she demands of Jean: "bite me!".

Sir Richard literally unveils Niccole as his latest possession at a party attended by all sorts of people (even Keith Erickson in a rare non-sex role), about to lead her around by a leash attached to a ring pierced through her genitals. Back in the day I was impressed by the goofiness of a party in THE MEPHISTO WALTZ (remember the dog head?), but leading a sheltered life I never got to see this outré moment.

Niccole voices over her happiness at being a slave, and the final credit card reads: "The Beginning...for Niccole".

Typical of underground-styled porn, the film is meant to outrage, shock or annoy -take your pick and it succeeds on its own terms. Richard Smedley (billed as Richard Samson) is a 1-note villain Sir William, almost matched by the creepiness of Sheldon Lee. Lee has one of the lousiest résumés I've seen for an actor: his most recent credit is in the abominably pretentious would-be British comedy about local s&m clubs PREACHING TO THE PERVERTED; he mistreated Fields another time in the equally pretentious Sadean exercise VIRGIN HOSTAGE, and showed up for many Al Adamson drive-in junkers, either acting or handling makeup chores (!). Actually there is a career arc of minor improvement: he debuted at rock bottom as a pretend African native in THE MIGHTY GORGA, and worked his way up to various duties on Greydon Clark action movies.

Fields' ability to absorb punishment, still deliver sexy "normal" hardcore XXX scenes and maintain her enthusiasm and energy level is why she's in the pantheon of starlets from this era. The unidentified thick-lipped "Madame Claudine" actress was impressive, and could have qualified for a hardcore Star Trek sex symbol a la Jolene Blalock if the casting gods had been more liberally minded. Or the reverse -I would certainly have enjoyed Jeri Ryan dishing out punishment au naturel in Adult movies. Angelique Pettyjohn made that transition.
