Storyline

In contemporary London, a beautiful and rich young man, Dorian Gray, loves Sybil Vane, an aspiring actress; thanks to her, he's momentarily less self-centered. He's also sitting for a portrait painted by his friend, Basil Hallward; when it's done, Dorian complains he will grow old while the painting stays unchanged. On the same night, he slaps Sybil and sends her away, then accepts the seductive offer of a party's hostess to sleep with her. The next day, the painting looks slightly older as he becomes corrupt and amoral, capable of destroying many lives inclusive Sybil's. In horror and fascination, Dorian hides away the portrait and continues a life of degradation. Over time, as the portrait becomes hideous, he's unchanged by debauched life; finally, he and Basil face the painting. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Dorian Gray (1970) seems more like a soft-porn movie than a take on the famous classic.

Seems that everyone, and I mean everyone wants to get Dorian Gray into bed in this stinker. Mr. Gray has sex with various beauties, all whom fall madly in love with him. As a matter of fact, two beautiful women whom he has bedded, are so desperate to sleep with him again, that he pawns them off to each other, and the two beauties are so "sexed-up" that they end up having sex with each other. Our hero always winds up in the shower with a 50ish Gay man, as well as having sex with an over 50 woman in a horse stall.

Dorian Gray (1970)is okay for a few laughs. There are some sexy ladies too, but aside from that, it's not much.
