Storyline

The decent model Gay Andrews and the sleazy married advertising executive Bob Walker leave a New Jersey restaurant. In Walker's car they immediately get into an argument because she won't go to a motel with him. The disappointed Walker is taking her home when he's pulled over for speeding by a cop, and taken to a police office where Walker has to pay a fine of $100. But Bob has to drive to New York to get the money, so Miss Andrews remains at the police office. While Bob's gone, the pudgy Wayne Jackson, also picked up for speeding, feels sorry for her. He then takes Miss Andrews to a restaurant where he drugs her. Written by Robert

Something weird but not that wonderful
13 March 2016 | by AlsExGalSee all my reviews

Model Gay Andrews, who looks rather like Shelly Fabares, is a loner in NYC. She gets a come on from married ad executive Bob Walker, a Steve Cochran look-a-like, after a gig in New Jersey. He wants to continue their necking session at a hot sheet motel. She turns him down but on their way back to NYC they get pulled over by a cop who hauls them to a corrupt JP who is in cahoots with a local pimp Wayne Jackson played by big man Ronald Long ( Love of Life (1951), The Notorious Landlady (1962) and The List of Adrian Messenger (1963)) who both resembles and sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock with hair.

When Walker leaves to get money so that he can pay his fine in cash, the JP detains Andrews as a hostage until his return. Long is on hand an hour later to rescue Andrews. He pays the $100 fine and the JP tells her she's free. Long offers to give her a ride, seemingly a good Samaritan. At a cafe Long slips a drug into Gay's drink and she wakes up at Longs house. A Classic tale of don't go home with strangers.

Koulias is good as Long's right hand man. The entire story is an instructional on white slavery, but its poster decries the "Public Relations Racket", the girl is first offered $50,000 for one year of service with the guarantee that she can go free after the year is up, then threatened with getting forced hooked on heroin if she won't cooperate voluntarily.

It's all done very on the cheap and is a bit clunky in spots, but the film still manages to entertain mostly by what is suggested during all the descriptive dialog (supplied mostly by Long) rather than what actually happens. So far so good in Something Weird's "Six Weird Noirs" DVD pack.
