Rating 3.0 Low Key and Low Budget Movie Lover: from Glen Head, NY US -- August, 9, 2004

This is the story of a DA, a reporter and a cop who try to bust the talent racket, which takes girls looking to be stars and turns them into "escorts". This is an okay, just okay, film who's history I'm completely unfamilar with, but which is probably more exciting then the film. The film has the feel of one of the "adults only" exposes that played in the 30's -50's that promised titilation on a taboo subject and rarely if ever delivered. The film appears to have been done on the cheap with most, if not all of the music provided by an organ.
The plot has some wonderfully lurid moments, the forgetful grandmother for example, but for the most part its truly run of the mill. Strangely the cast is across the board solid, even when delivering lines that should have been left crumbled up in the waste basket.
Not the worst movie, though certainly not the best, this movie just sort of is.
