I watched this the other night wondering what a "dirty" movie from 1966 might be like. Well it was quite an interesting experience. PPS is about of prostitutes who work in NYC trying to ward off some two bit mafia wanna bes from cutting into their profits.
There are a lot of things I actually liked about this B.... no C movie. First of all the NYC on location shooting in Times Square and other locales is interesting. I am assuming it was filmed in the summer of '66 judging from other movie advertisements in Times Square (The Bible with John Huston of all movies !)and the light clothing people walking the NYC streets were wearing. Lots of signboards with Esso on it as well as it's gas stations seen throughout the movie. You would think they sponsored and bank rolled this piece of crap.
The movie is musically scored by some no name rock and roll band named Jimmy and the Rockets or something like that. They produce a 60's go go beat complete with organ that plays repetitively throughout the film. I can't seem to get that beat out of my head as of this writing.
No sex, a hint of lesbianism but plenty of 1966 bare breasts and bottoms in this flick. I was actually shocked by the amount of nudity in it expecting only a scant amount. Its actually quite comical to see these women walking around the "cat house" naked for no obvious reason other than the fact that the movie makers want to exploit nudity for sheer profit. Knowing very little if anything at all about the industry of prostitution, i never knew prostitutes interviewed each other in the nude for the position or took showers together for that matter. Well you see my point.
The acting is horrible. The actresses playing the prostitutes act as if they are reading lines from cue cards for the first time without rehearsal. It is actually quite funny to observe. The movie is also narrated by the "madam" who i cant tell has a authentic or fake Swedish accent ! The violent scenes are so badly acted out they are not at all violent but rather comical to look at. The extreme low budget is some times exhibited in this film which makes it all the more hilarious. There is one scene when these hookers are out in the country and i swear i think there is a guy off stage whistling bird chirping sound effects.
Grab a beer, pop this into your DVD player and laugh.. laugh...laugh..
