Everything about it is as squalid as its subject, but the real nastiness is in its hypocrisy, the suddenly high moral tone it takes at moments. Full Review

Description by

Sex-bomb Midnight Franklin is the star of the Pink Flamingo Club in London's wild Soho district. Midnight's lover, club-owner Johnny Solo, carefully hand-picks the exotic dancers from the scores of actresses, art students and young housewives that seek to join the well-paid Flamingo strippers. Johnny and the girls are not adverse to after-hours "deals" with the club's wealthy clientele. The cash is rolling in and life is good. So good, in fact, that a rival club owner wants a piece of the pie and is prepared to use violence to get it. But Johnny is not one to back down from a fight, setting off a downward spiral of events that will explode in betrayal and murder!

Playboy centerfold and 1957 Golden Globe winner Jayne Mansfield was Hollywood's quintessential blonde bombshell whose considerable acting abilities were always overshadowed by her spectacular figure. She co-starred in huge box-office hits such as The Girl Can't Help It (1956) and Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957). Jayne was at the height of her success and popularity when her life was cut short in a car crash at age 34.

Product Description:

Leo Genn stars as Johnny Solo, the owner of a seamy London nightclub battling a series of rivals in order to stay in business. Pinup superstar Jayne Mansfield costars as his girlfriend Midnight Franklin, a nightclub performer miraculously squeezed into a series of nearly-transparent, impossibly tight outfits. Steeped in the atmosphere of pre-Swinging Sixties London, Terence Young's neo-noir melodrama showcases Mansfield's bombshell eroticism and features a small supporting turn by nascent horror icon Christopher Lee.
