bad sexploitation flick. Exploitation
filmmaker Ted V. Mikels ("The
Astro-Zombies"/"The Corpse Grinders"/"Blood
Orgy of the She-Devils") made the gaudy crime
comedy for $145,000. The inept
women-in-prison script is by James Gordon White.
are actually eight and not ten lady coal miners who
rob a fancy California jewelry story of diamonds.
Their sleazy Las Vegas fence (Ted V.
Mikels) trades them cocaine for gems. This
pic's only funny scene, has the fence stabbed
to death in the chest with the girl leader's stiletto
heels, as the girls are disappointed there's no money
in the deal but grab the greedy fence's dope while
fleeing. Trying to deal the dope in a bar gets two of
the girls arrested by undercover narcs. In prison they
are bullied by a sadistic butch head guard (Georgia
Morgan), but soon escape. The girls then get
involved with a sheik, who has a yacht. The sheik had
a valuable family scarab stolen during the jewelry
heist and invites the girls on-the-run to stay on the
boat as belly dancers. All's well that ends well. As
expected, there's a most unimaginative ending--when
the sheik gets back his scarab, the cops drop the
murder and theft charges against the girls.
It's a chore to watch such boring crap, unless this sort of low-mark in filmmaking turns you on.
