    Agony is right. When the film began I thought it was going to be a winner. Interesting camera shots, a woman who's really stacked (Pat Barrington), and some well-cast loser types to play the various clients Ms. Barrington entertains as an unfulfilled prostitute looking for love in all the wrong places.

    But then the camera-work became a chore -- lingering on shots for too long, not really expressing anything other than what we've already allowed to sink in. We become aware that this dirty woman is mentally tormented very early on, and then all that begins to happen after awhile is that the director keeps indulging himself by driving that point home again and again and again. Okay, she has personal demons; we get it already -- now what? As I said earlier, Pat Barrington has a nice package, and that's about the only reason to endure everything else that drones on in between getting an eyeful of her natural gifts. It's too bad that even her nude scenes are not filmed in a more enticing manner.

    I had just found out that my next door neighbor was Pat Barrington. I have known her for a number of years, and did not have a clue to whom she was...She was a wonderful, warm and caring person she just passed away last month,August of 2014; May the angels keep her close always.

    Pat Barrrington stars as suffering housewife Barbara in this tale of big city ennui from roughie specialist William Rotsler, who (as usual) couldn't resist the opportunity to neck on camera with his leading lady. Barbara is married to ever busy hubby Barton, who spends his days at the office and is too pooped to pop at night. In order to fill the void--and the void left by her equally uncaring father--Barbara spends much of her free time as an expensive call girl, satisfying the desires of any man with some ready cash, including a pair of Utah delegates attending a political convention. In between assignations, she bares her soul to her psychiatrist, a balding man in glasses who doesn't seem to be helping her very much. This is one of those nudie roughies where the women get slapped a lot, but keep their panties on (and the men keep their pants on, too). The sex scenes, such as they are, are extremely boring, but the framing device is neatly done and some of the photography of night time Los Angeles is actually quite impressive.

    This black and white suburban drama has some fantastic scenes, along with pointless ones. The lead, stripper Pat Barrington, doesn't seem to be acting at all, but really living in the moment. She really has a strangely unique quality of emptiness and pain in her and you can't help but empathize with her plight.

    SPOILERS: the "eating scene" character seem to have no point at all, but the casting director for this film did a fantastic job. I gave this film a 7 and would recommend it to anyone interested in mid-60's exploitation films. The cinematography was great and I wish Ms. Barrington had made more than 9 or 10 films.
