A bald whore whaling on a sniveling pimp with her hig-heeled shoe for her cut - what could ever beat that for a beginning? Constance Towers showed some guts in taking the lead role, I always thought - depravity, sex, murder, child-molestation - these were taboo subjects back then, and it couldn't have done wonders for her career. This is the film for me that defines the non-war movie side of Fuller's oeuvre - the very heights of lurid, nothing more, and certainly nothing less.
