|HAVE A GOOD RUMMAGE DEARIE!|
(c) 1979 BRENT WALKER 94MINS Reg 2 DVD'S From UNIVERSAL HOME ENTERTAINMENT / OPTIMUM HOME ENTERTAINMENT....
Following the success of 'The Stud', Brent Walker was keen to cash in and rushed this sequel into production, even though the script was unfinished and the film not fully thought out. Joan was extremely unhappy with it, particularly the script..
"I hate, hate, hate the film! It was a cheap imitation of 'The Stud'. I did not like the script, which was half written, furthermore I did not like the director! They also gave it a damn awful exploitative title, which stuck to me like flypaper through the popular press for years. I begged Brent Walker not to use that title."
|DO YOU KEEP YOUR SNAKE IN THERE?|
"Fontaine was not fully explored in 'The Stud'.. In 'The Bitch' she is a woman desperately trying to hang on to a plushy lifestyle. A broader spectrum of emotion is called into play. I've tried to show the different facets to the character of this type of woman."
