Unknown - Abduction of an American Playgirl (1975)


Two horny guys with no money spot a pretty blonde walking down the street. They kidnap her and take her to a remote cabin owned by the sister of one of them, planning to have sex with her for a few days, then turn her loose. They discover that she is actually the daughter of very wealthy parents, and decide that after they're done with her, they'll hold her for ransom. It turns out that the girl is not quite the spoiled heiress they think she is, and soon they learn that they're in for a lot more than they counted on.

Early and most enjoyable hardcore effort by unnamed director that stars Darby Lloyd Rains, who I confess I did not know, although she made over 50 such films including the marvellous, The Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann. Here the bubbly lass with the whitest of white skin deals almost single handed with some eight guys even if they don't all exactly rise to the occasion. As with the horror genre I always think its a risk to mix humour in such a film but this has to be the most successful example, I even found myself smiling whilst still finding it erotic. The speeded up threesome was a real treat and there was a really good feel throughout the movie, helped by a decent and not too repetitive score and that indefatigable performance from the lovely Ms Rains.
