The Big Bird Cage (1972) - Jack Hill



THE BIG BIRD CAGE/ FACTS Director Jack Hill followed up his genre-defining women-in-prison film THE BIG DOLL HOUSE with this action-packed sequel, also starring Pam Grier and set in the Philippines. Grier plays Blossom, the machine gun-toting girlfriend of revolutionary leader Django (Sid Haig). His fellow revolutionaries want girlfriends too, so Django and Blossom make plans to liberate the nearby women's prison, a grueling sugar mill work camp run by the high-strung Warden Zappa (Andy Centera). Slender babe Anitra Ford co-stars as Torry, a free-spirited nymphomaniac whose bedding of important political figures has landed her in the prison, and who together with Blossom makes plans for the big, explosion-packed breakout. Grier and Ford are both dynamite with their bad attitudes and skimpy prison attire, and there's plenty of catfights--both in and out of the mud, and showers. Aside from some dated gay-stereotype humor involving the male guards of the camp, this is still pretty rock-solid entertainment, replete with suspense, sex, bloodsoaked veangance, and captivating outdoor cinematography by Phillip Sandalan. Hill and Grier would follow up this success with the blaxploitation classic COFFY the following year. *Cast* Pam Grier , Anitra Ford , Sid Haig , Vic Diaz , Carol Speed , Andy Centenera

The Big Doll House (1971) - Jack Hill



Director Jack Hill, a protégé of the original schlockmeister, Roger Corman, knew his way around a low budget and a shocking subject. Women-in-prison films were nothing new in 1971, but The Big Doll House had it all--sex, violence, nudity, a sadistic guard, and a sexually frustrated warden--and served it up with an abundance of cheapjack energy and tongue-in-cheek humor. The beauty of Hill's movies lay in the way they could appeal not only to the hordes who would go see them at drive-ins but also to the true trash-cinema fans who could appreciate his offbeat sensibilities. The plot is rather hoary, with a new inmate discovering the corruption of the prison setup, complete with a drugged-out psycho, a cellmate informer, and a guard who delights in torturing the women with poisonous snakes. The girls put their heads together and begin to devise a way out of their tropical hellhole, but not before disrobing several times and having a knock-down, drag-out fight in the muddy rice paddy where they're forced to toil all day. The Big Doll House, like some of Hill's other movies, was shot in the Philippines, with the cast and crew making up plot elements and dialogue in near-guerrilla filmmaking. Though the islands were a cheap place to produce movies in the '70s, the working conditions were boot camp-like. Where The Big Doll House really succeeds is in its mix of titillation and action, a fast-paced combination that makes it one heck of a fun exploitation movie to watch. It's also worth noting that this movie gave the great Pam Grier her first real starring role; she would become a Jack Hill regular before moving on to more substantial roles

The Princess and the Call Girl (1986) - Gérard Loubeau & Radley Metzger



Quote:
Radley Metzger, one of the most distinctive and original directors in '60s sexploitation, helmed this softcore adult comedy, his last film to date. Audrey (Carol Levy) is a wealthy socialite about to be married, who comes to New York City to visit her best friend from college, Lucy, who looks almost exactly like her (and is also played by Carol Levy). Lucy confesses to Audrey that she's promised to entertain guests in two places at once over the next few days and asks if she would be so kind as to take her place on a weekend getaway to Monaco. Audrey agrees, but she soon learns that Lucy is actually a high-priced prostitute and the "entertaining" she'll need to do is a bit more involved than serving wine and cheese. When Audrey isn't able to get back to New York in time, Lucy has to turn the tables and pose as her friend at her engagement party. (AMG)

Bummer! (1973) - William Allen Castleman



From IMDb- Very dated (to say the least) movie about groupies. Movie focuses on a rock band called--most imaginatively--The Group. It involves three women--black Janyce, blond Barbara and red head Dolly--getting involved sexually with various members. However everybody ignores fat, ugly, alcoholic Butts (Dennis Burkley) who slowly begins to go insane....

Boy was this BAD! Not good-bad just bad! Women are treated horribly in this film--in one particularly ugly sequence Barbara and Dolly are forced to strip and shower with each other while being verbally humiliated! Seriously...could anyone be turned on by something that sick? Also there is a long and totally pointless sequence in a strip club. Why is it in here? To pad the running time and shove more nudity in our face. Hilariously this film tries to show us that groupies are real, ordinary people deserving respect while shoving their nude bodies in our face! There's even an uproariously bad romantic monologue showing the three couples frolicking in the woods while a lousy song plays in the background.

All the songs by The Group are lousy too--very bad 70s music. The acting across the board is terrible--only Carol Speed shows any ability at all.
