J.C. (David Calder) is a bisexual hustler in New York City. He'll do anything for money--but won't let love or emotion in. We find out why by flashbacks to his childhood where his mother lectured him that money was everything. Then he one day saves Jean (Donna Troy) from being beaten. They fall in love and decide to move...but can J.C. truly leave his past behind? It all leads to a negative ending.
This was shot in the late 60s ("Where Eagles Dare" is playing and that came out in 1968) but it looks like a 1970s movie. There's tons of nudity and quite a lot of male frontal. There are a few sex scenes that approach hard core and a very negative, depressing nature. This might be hard to watch but the terrible direction detracts as does the lousy acting. Calder is tall, handsome, muscular and has a nice body (and went on to a long career) but he's a terrible actor. Still he looks great nude and that's all that matters here. Troy actually seems pretty good but she's hardly in the movie.
In a way this is a time capsule of Times Square in NYC in the late 1960s but it's negative tone and bad acting make it a chore to sit through. Also it's surprisingly dull despite all the nudity and sex. I give this a 5 and that's mostly because of Calder's body.
