Storyline

Justine (Koo Stark) wishes to remain innocent and virginal, but instead slips into a life of debauchery, torture, whipping, slavery and salaciousness. Meanwhile, her brazen, flirtatious and liberated sister Juliette ironically receives nothing but happiness and reward for her wanton behavior. Justine's only possible hope of true love and salvation is one of her sister's former lovers, the suave and elegant Lord Carlisle (Martin Potter). But is he as virtuous as he seems?

Quotes

Mme Laronde: Now, all you have to do is comply with all my teachings. Be clean and economical, frank with me and fair with your companions - and fraudulent when dealing with men. Come with me my little one.

The Queen was not amused
26 September 2020 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

It could be conjectured that if Koo Stark had not appeared in this film and a couple of others like it that she would have ended up as Duchess of York.Was that a fair exchange? Basically it is a fairly tawdry film.In the last quarter of an hour nearly everyone,including a dead woman,gets raped or killed or both.Not very pleasant.
