The Bitch The owner of a trendy disco starts having problems with the men in her life and the Mafia, which is trying to move in on her place.
There’s a lot wrong, but Joan Collins more than makes up for it
One thing redeems it all – Joan Collins. She is just amazing, a stunning performance considering the lameness of all around her. The famous, extraordinary “chaffeur cap” seduction & striptease scene is for me possibly the best seduction scene in the whole of cinema. It never ceases to entertain. And considering that Joan Collins was 45 when she made this, it deserves a high mark for that alone.
Unfortunately, “The Bitch” is neither campy enough nor trashy enough to live down to its sensational(istic) title. In fact, apart maybe from a pool-orgy sequence, it is rather quaint. Joan Collins’ character is hardly even a bitch – she is just rich and liberated. She does get to flash her magnificent bare body, which should be enough to get a rise out of most viewers, but this film is more of a promo for disco music than anything else.
