“A monumental achievement on the hardcore circuit…porno of a higher order, it suggests what forms such films might take in the future.” –Frank Segers, VARIETY
Following his two classic roughies, DEFIANCE (1974) and THE TAKING OF CHRISTINA (1975), the legendary Armand Weston tackled the noir genre with this knowing nod to films like LADY OF THE LAKE (1947), THE BIG HEAT (1953), and THE BIG SLEEP (1946). Blond pretty-boy Ras Kean (THE OPENING OF MISTY BEETHOVEN) stars as Frosty Knight, a wisecracking gumshoe who wakes up in the hospital after his latest case has taken a violent turn. Flashbacks reveal he was hired by haughty society dame Karen Spencer (stunning Vogue model Catherine Burgess) to find her missing brother Keith, who has vanished into the NYC underworld. His investigation leads him down a trail filled with red herrings and shady women, including erotic sculptress Jody Maxwell, bald beauty Iminu and her girlfriends Cecilia Gardner and Annie Sprinkle, and even his ravishing ex-wife Jennifer Welles. It becomes clear someone doesn’t want him to find Keith, as bodies begin turning up while he inches closer to the truth. With superb photography by the legendary João Fernandes (“Harry Flecks”), memorable tough-talking narration, and a twist ending you will never see coming, this is porn noir at its finest.
