Storyline

This kicks off with the murder of one Adolf Schwartz (who bears a striking resemblance to another famous Adolf) by placing a ravenous piranha fish in his bathtub. Who did it? No-one knows or cares, as they're too busy being distracted by busty Margo Winchester, who hitch-hikes into# town and gets involved with all the local men. It all ends with a series of complicated plot twists that reveal that just about everyone is really someone else. And if it gets too confusing, Russ Meyer helpfully arranges for a one- woman nude Greek chorus to pop up at intervals to explain what's going on.

Alternate Versions

When submitted for a rating from the BBFC in 1980, the movie was cut for an "X" rating. When submitted for a rating in 1998 by Allied Troma the movie (presumably the uncut version) had 1m 39s cut in order to receive an "18" rating. The video cuts apply to a rape scene on a river bank and the latter bar rape scene. The 1999 video from Polygram also features these cuts. As of 2005, all previous cuts were waived and the Arrow Film video/DVD is uncut. See more »

It is a movie where Meyer's special talents produce a near-perfect example of stimulating erotica…
12 October 2008 | by Nazi_Fighter_DavidSee all my reviews

The film begins quite mysteriously in a dungeon where a young man is torturing an Adolf Hitler look-alike… We then quickly cut to a stunning nude, played by Kitten Natividad, who teasingly introduces the audience to the setting…

We are in Northern California, in a small, rural community… Just outside of town, a very beautiful, buxom young lady is hitchhiking along a lonely country road… She is picked up by a young man, who happens to be the infant terrible of the local rich set... He tries to take advantage of the girl's abundant sexuality but after a short sequence involving a brutal rape, she turns the tables and ends up killing him...

Russ Meyer has never been one to linger too long on a single shot… He likes to cut, especially to ladies running naked as jaybirds around the lush countryside… In this case, however, he has added more than just a tease with Kitten Natividad, who narrates the events of the story with a husky, British accent while displaying her terrific figure… The true star of the show, however, is Raven de la Croix, whose piercing dark eyes and fully rounded, voluptuous figure combine with some firmly loyal acting for an explosive performance…
