The editor of a small-town newspaper sends his star reporter out to Hollywood to get the real story of what goes on in Hollywood. She goes tooling down Hollywood Blvd, in her Buick-8 convertible and buys a map showing where the stars live. That's the highlight. In cowboy-speak, this exploitation film..."is all hat...and no cattle." But it does have the world's worst French/Apache dancer ever to clunk across any stage. Kinda ugly, also. Written by

I like classic exploitation films, but this one left me cold. The idea of stringing together a bunch of clips from strip tease movies with narration by a supposedly wide-eyed innocent reporter was dumb the moment it was conceived -- and got no better in the execution. This movie has everything: nipples, lingerie, whips, girl-fighting, a Latin specialty act, models and photographers, drunken actors, and a guy who can roll his hat down his arm and catch it in his hand, but with the exception of the last bit, the whole assemblage of gimmicks was actually more boring than one could have imagined. The only thing (besides the guy who could roll his hat down his arm and catch it in his hand) that really grabbed my attention was the face of one of the protagonist's lingerie-model friends -- the little short brunette with the pointy face and the dark-tan skin. I could swear i've seen her before in another movie or on television, possibly playing a light-skinned African American rather than a dark-skinned Anglo-American, or possibly playing a juvenile delinquent extra part. Unfortunately, the IMDb credits for this movie as of April 2007 are incomplete and do not list character names at all, even for the actors who are listed, so i am unable to identify this mystery-chick. Anyway, if you like really bad hairdos, ugly lingerie, and amateur strip tease by grinning gals who have been taught to wink one eye as if that gesture meant something, then this is your cup of tea. Otherwise, just watch it for the man who can roll his hat down his arm and catch it in his hand.
