In Puerto Rico, a down-on-his-luck private detective is hired by a woman to take compromising photos of her husband, a notorioous nightclub owner. After he finishes the job, he finds himself hauled in by the police, who inform him that the nightclub owner has been murdered--and that he is the prime suspect.Written by
Private eye Pereira agrees to assist a lady in distress. She knows her husband has a new lover, but needs photos to prove it and get divorced. The photos are however discovered later on a corpse, and Pereira is unexpectedly involved in a case of blackmail and murder - as the main suspect.
Director Jess Franco plays Pereira himself in "Downtown" and with wonderful irony due to the off-monologue where he describes himself as a smart guy who cannot be fooled - whereas in the movie, it happens to him constantly. The voice in the German soundtrack (this is a Swiss production) belongs to a voice actor who also dubbed Ernie in Sesamy Street. Great fun early 70s sleaze with gratuitous nudity, but a remarkably good script compared to many other works from Franco's hand.
