British sexploitation as mod as it comes, adapted from a screenplay by brothers David and Donald Cammell and directed by Robert Freeman, who photographed and designed the influential UK covers of five Beatles albums: With the Beatles (1963), A Hard Day's Night (1964), Beatles for Sale (1964), Help! (1965) and Rubber Soul (1965). Four independently wealthy dolly birds — Sadie (Judy Huxtable), Melanie (Esther Anderson), Busbee (German-born nude model Monika Ringwald) and Samson (Kathy Simmonds) — kidnap pop star Christian (David Anthony) from a wrestling match, chloroforming him and smuggling him out of the arena dressed as a nun. They spirit him back to their communal home, an inflatable plastic dome, tie him to a circular bed and take turns having their way with him. Meanwhile, Christian's manager (John Ronane) and besotted gay wrestler (Ricki Starr) try desperately to find the pop idol, who, truth be told, isn't especially eager to be rescued. One of the most sought-after of psychedelic obscurities, this little-seen naughty comedy is a non-stop riot of Swinging London fashions and pop art accessories. The soundtrack features by Traffic, short-lived flower-pop Brit band Nirvana and others.
