Toni is a secretary who is tired of not making much money, even though she is sleeping with her boss. Her girlfriend convinces her to take a job as a cocktail hostess, where she can make a lot of money in tips, and meet a lot of men.
"Hellborn" was a film that Ed and Conrad Brooks were working on over the course of more than a decade. The film never got made, but the footage shot was used in both "Night of the Ghouls" and (more significantly) in "The Sinister Urge."
Shown here for the first time is all of the remaining footage that was shot for "Hellborn" along with the complete home movie footage Ed shot for Conrad and his brothers around 1948.
Conrad's "Mysteries in Shadow" is far less interesting, but helps flesh out an otherwise thin lineup on the tape.
Interview segments with Conrad are sometimes interesting, but he mostly tells the same stories he's told elsewhere. More useful is an interview with actor Peter Coe at the end of the tape, where they speak of Ed's last days. (Ed died in Coe's house in 1978.)
Worth hunting down for the Ed collector.
