Raquel Welch Incredible
23 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Flareup hit the theaters November 10 1969 starring Raquel Welch, James Stacey, and Luke Askew.

Summary: The movie opens with shots of Las Vegas. Nikki leaves her place and gets into a cab where she's on her way to meet with her girlfriends Michele and Jackie. While on her way there, she runs into her ex-husband who wants a second chance. Nikki walk away from him goes to the table where she sees Michele and Jackie. Alan approaches her again and she starts to walk away when Alan shoots her in the back. Nikki is taken to the hospital while Michele and Jackie go to the police station. Michele goes to the hospital where she meets up with Jackie only to find that Nikki died. Alan then goes after Jackie who he hits with a car and then tries to run Michele down. Michele jumps into her car and heads for Los Angeles. When she gets there, she calls Lloyd her boss in Las Vegas to let him know that she was all right. Lloyd tells her to go to the club called the losers to see Jeri about a job. However, there's one problem! The bartender has a drug problem and Alan knows it so Alan and the bartender have a little talk. Back in Los Angeles Michele not only gets a job as a dancer with Jeri but also hooks up with Jeri bouncer Joe.

Questions: Why did Alan harm Nikki? Why did Alan want to harm Michele? Why was Michele dancing at a club? Whom did Alan call on the phone? Whom did Alan try to run down? Why did Michele leave Las Vegas? Where did Michele go? Where did Lloyd tell Michele to go? Whom did Lloyd tell Michele to go and see?

Now some thoughts on this picture! This picture was far better than Raquel last, and this one had nonstop action. Luke Askew did a fine job of playing Nikki ex-husband. He was your typical murder with the look that goes with it. As for Raquel Welch performance, the only word that comes to mine is fantastic. She was awesome in this movie and her beauty stood out and shined like never before. The outfit that she wore on stage to dance was breathtaking. In fact, all the outfits she wore in this movie were breathtaking. Of course, it doesn't matter what Raquel had on because she looks good in everything or nothing. However, it not only her looks that get you caught up in Raquel Welch it's her talent. Can she not only act, and sing but she can dance. Boy can she dance! Just watch this movie and watch her dance on stage. She's incredible! I give this movie 10 weasel stars for two reasons. The first and by far is Raquel Welch who's the leading actress and deserves 10 stars. The second reason is that this movie was wall-to-wall excitement from beginning to end.
