Aside from the low-budget production and horrible at times acting etc... This is to some people a very interesting piece of history. When our intrepid reporter "gets lost" in the Hollywood hills, she ends up at this "Photo Ranch". This place is called The Hacienda in certain circles. There is Arline Hunter, Playboy Playmate August 1954 swimming in "THE LITTLE POOL". This was an ACTUAL place where photographers and models did their work! This is not a made up movie plot. This was a (then in ruins), ranch with arched patios, and cobble stone drive and walkways, and buildings. "The Hacienda was built by a Pasadena millionaire in 1927, and served as the backdrop for even more photos than the Spiderpool during the heyday of 1950s cheesecake photography." This is a quote from a web-page on the Hacienda and the Spiderpool. Another photog/model place.
Well here I was just watching this piece of Schlock when it suddenly became VERY interesting to me. The place is a piece of Seamy Hollywood History! Other than that and a few funny moments it is nothing.
