Truly bizarre......
19 April 2012 | by CurtHerzstarkSee all my reviews

Doris Wishman(for more info about Wishman, see Schlock! The Secret History of American Movies (2001)& American Grindhouse) is one of those cult directors that I've heard about but never seen any of her movies and finally I got to see this one. Wishman was a female version of Ed Wood and her films was less then perfect.

This bizarre story, that also serves as an cautionary tale in the same vein as Tell Your Children/ Reefer Madness (1936) about a girl with acting dreams, comes to NYC and ends up being a prostitute.

Wishman seems more preoccupied with strange camera angles, stock footage of squirrels, exterior shots of inanimate objects then actually telling this story.

Throughout the movie she puts in scenes of women dressed in lingere, strip scenes etc. With very bad audio, and total lack of an coherent narrative Wishman doesn't seem to know what she is doing.

The film is mess but very entertaining such and should be viewed by anyone who tells you that your film career will never happen. Because this film is proof that ANYONE can make a film, albeit not a good one.

Look out for an early acting role by Tony Lo Bianco, more famous for films like:The French Connection (1971), God Told Me To (1976), City of Hope (1991), Nixon (1995) etc.
