A single mother prostitute, who goes by the name Princess, finds herself forced to work undercover for the police in order to apprehend a homicidal, misogynistic pimp named Ramrod, who will do anything not to get arrested.
As call-girl Ginger.
Let me see a warrant right now, boy.
Pete Mendez: Warrants? We don't need no stinkin' warrants because we're holding them in our right hand, buffalo breath!
The scene where the two plain-clothes police officers are taking Ramrod to the precinct for the booking of Ginger's murder. Ramrod (Wings Hauser) manages to overpower them and causes police officer Pete Mendez (Pepe Serna) driving to crash. We see the car crash from a side vantage point, then we see it crash from a head-on position. It is the same crash filmed from two different angles using two cameras. In a little economizing, the filmmakers get two separate shots of the same crash so as not to have to set up twice for a matching crash shot.
The UK cinema version was heavily cut by over 6 minutes by the BBFC to edit scenes of violence and torture including Ramrod's torture of Ginger with the pimp stick (twisted wire coat-hangers) and shots of Princess being assaulted and beaten. The 1987 Embassy video release was the pre-edited U.S TV version which ran around 4 minutes shorter, removed most of the violent scenes, and was dubbed to delete nearly all the profanity.
