Did You Know?

In an interview, Erica Gavin says that the footage of her in this film was actually shot for another film that ran out of money and was shelved. After she became well known the footage of her was bought by a producer who built this film around it.See more »

Erica's Short Screen Time, 5 December 2015
Author: Christine Beatty from Los Angeles

Clearly somebody sought to cash in on Erica Gavin's celebrity after Vixen! and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. It was a crappy 16mm shoot shot, save for one scene, without sync sound. There's a lot of VO posing as dubbing, yet as some of this inane and vapid "dialog" occurs when mouths are otherwise busy with body parts, it borders of ridiculous.

As softcore it barely measures up because, save for Erica's scenes, you don't see anything new after the first 20 minutes. What's worse, though she has star billing, Ms. Gavin only appears in 1/3 of the movie and has no dialog. It sound like someone else did her "dubbing" (voiceover). If you want nude Erica, watch Vixen! or BVD, because the poor quality of the photography makes this film 65 minutes of wasted time.
