Probably the Best of the Series

White Slaves of Chinatown (1964)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Olga (Audrey Campbell) returns to Chinatown where she sets up shop to look for some prostitutes. She begins by throwing pot and opium parties to where she kidnaps the girls and forces them to do her dirty work. If they refuse to do it? The girls are then sent to the torture chamber.

WHITE SLAVES OF CHINATOWN is a film I really hated the first time I watched it. In fact, I hated the entire Olga series but I decided to revisit them and I must say that this one here worked a little bit better on a second viewing but at the same time there's no question this is still a pretty bad movie. As was the case with a lot of low-budget movies, the film was shot silent with added voice-over narration and to me this is never a good way to do your movie.

With that said, there are some entertaining moments early on as I thought that this film has a bit more story to it than other entries in the series. I liked how we got to see the various New York City and Chinatown streets. That was certainly a major plus and we also had some great scenes dealing with the drug parties as well as the torture chamber. The film actually gets off to a very good start but around the forty-minute mark the film pretty much runs out of gas and it really becomes boring.

Campbell is a good figure for the Olga character but I'm not sure I'd say she gave a "good" performance. This film has become a cult favorite over the years and I guess I can understand that. The B&W cinematography is good and there are some good elements to this "roughie" but at the same time there are too many flaws that keep it from being better.
