The titular Rolls Royce sports New York license plates that are incorrect for the car for three reasons. First, the gold on blue plates were retired in 1972, when all plates were reissued in blue on gold coloring. Second, there are no New York registration placards on the windshield. Third, these plates are "NYP" plates, only issued to accredited members of the New York City press corps. See more »
This film is a real treat for fans of Lina Romay. Not only is it a rare non-Jess Franco outing, but also Miss Romay works to a more explicit degree of nudity than usual.
As in most of her films, she doesn't do very much, but she does it beautifully, and her performance is understated but somehow powerful and compelling. As others have commented, there is very little storyline, but it doesn't really matter as Miss Romay is on screen most of the time, looking absolutely stunning and elegant, and virtually naked throughout. And despite all that she looks more comfortable in this production than I have ever seen her. A more than decent soundtrack makes up for the lack of dialogue.
The DVD version I watched had been made from a much better quality print than you'd expect for a cult film of such antiquity and is well worth purchasing if you are a fan of Miss Romay's work.
Personally, I think this is the best film Lina Romay ever made, and a must to watch if you are a fan of her, though maybe not quite so good as an introduction to her filmography.
