Set in the Depression, a gang of half-witted small-time hoods led by Slim Grissom kidnap heiress Barbara Blandish and Slim proceeds to fall in love with her. Remake of the British film No Orchids for Miss Blandish (1948).
The psychotic killer, the young heiress...the kidnapping that becomes a love story.
Did You Know?
The film was a particular dislike of UK BBFC censor John Trevelyan
, who extensively cut the 1971 cinema release for an "X" certificate (the BBFC website incorrectly lists it as passing without cuts). The 2001 Fremantle DVD release is 15-rated and fully uncut. See more
