Best Porn Treatment of White Slavery Ring Subject Matter
21 January 2006 | by NodriesrespectSee all my reviews

Singled out by porn critic extraordinaire as well as fine adult filmmaker in his own right Jim Holliday (who passed away in late 2004) in his essential 1986 tome ONLY THE BEST as the best of Shaun Costello's '70s grinders, this one sees private dick Dan McCord (Roger Caine) hot on the trail of a white slavery ring run out of a Coney Island amusement park, a great location put to maximum use.

Contacted by Richard Anselm (Costello) to locate his missing wife Eileen (Roseanne Farrow, also in Costello's TWO LIVES OF JENNIFER), McCord soon finds himself up to his neck in some of the sleaziest characters the series had to offer. Eileen's best friend and Richard's secret mistress Barbara Benedict (C.J. Laing, the girl in the legendary kitchen pee & anal encounter with Wade Nichols in Radley Metzger's brilliant BARBARA BROADCAST) kept pressing him to tell and leave his spouse, helping matters along by hiring the evil Sultana (black starlet Gloria Todd who had bit parts in ALL ABOUT GLORIA LEONARD and Armand Weston's impressive TAKE OFF) and her horny idiot henchmen (early turns from Herschel Savage and Dave Ruby, the Al Bundy of porno) to kidnap and drug Eileen with U.T. 13, a mind-bending substance developed by the CIA to render enemies of the state helpless. As Barbara's machinations prove fruitless (Richard wants nothing more to do with her and only yearns to have his wife back), she tries to undo what she has wrought only to find that Sultana is but a cog in the wheel spun by international ringleader Henri Picard (Jamie Gillis) who ships housewives to wealthy potentates in the Middle East. Dan's one time informant Lefty Jacobs (Ashley Moore) fills him in on Picard's whereabouts and provides information about the drug by showing him a stag film demonstration featuring Robert Bolla (soon to embark on a parallel career as "Robert Kerman" in Italian zombie movies) and brain-fried Patty Barnett a/k/a frequently name-changing Patty Boyd.

Considering the modest means available, this probably has the best plot/porn ratio of the entire Dan McCord canon. The story, while nonsensical (perhaps proving that Costello maintained a healthy sense of humor about what was in essence a poor man's JOHNNY WADD series), rarely gets in the way of some superbly staged sex scenes. Costello and Farrow get the ball rolling with an extremely erotic encounter, approximated yet not quite matched (adding insult to injury for the neglected mistress) by his motel room tussle with Laing. In the only substantial part of her brief career, Todd chews the scenery with gusto and performs a couple of seriously raunchy three-ways, including a double penetration at film's end. To make good on this film's title, he threw in a nasty comeuppance for Laing's character with the expected use of whips, chains and nipple clamps.
