This one time "lost film" has been found and is now available on video. Okay so it may not be exactly a lost classic but it's always nice to finally see a movie that we have only heard about. Judy is a go-go dancer who accidentally gets her hands on a rare jewel. She has hardly had time to get used to it before she finds herself being chased all over the place by gangsters who want it back. Joe E. Ross plays a Cuban hit man assigned to get the gem back at all costs. Yes that's right, Joe E. Ross former burlesque comic and the memorable Gunther Toody from TV's "Car 54, Where Are You?" as a Cuban gunslinger! Now you know this picture is going to have lots of comedy! John Lodge, who also starred in THE WITCHMAKER before giving up acting and going into politics, eventually becoming governor of Connecticut is the handsome hero who gets to skinny dip with Judy. Watch for real life ex-burlesque queen Zorita playing the boss of a strip club (it was her own real life club too!) and busty blonde Sabrina (later the star of THE ICE HOUSE) turns up as, what else?, a stripper. This movie also features the first ever death-by-chainsaw done in movies so the comedy and violence are offered in equal amounts. Okay, now we know this movie is out there. It probably wasn't really "lost" just sitting on a shelf somewhere in unmarked cans. But it is available now so let's all go see it!
