A CuteLittle Movie about Movie Making
If you are a beginning filmmaker, this is a cute little film. It is hardly realistic but it never takes itself seriously. My favorite scene is what ZSA ZSA does with the script she's given by Ben Glass. You as a young filmmaker, however, should take it realistically. Yes your script will be wonderful and loved by everyone who reads it. Everyone will want to invest and seduce you, both male and female (Orson Bean is terrific as a mentally-disturbed rich man who is attracted to Ben Glass). But things will go hopelessly wrong. . . .Now if you are reading this you have to be one of the few. I found a copy for sale for a dollar or two at a Video Rental store. Why this Movie was made will ever remain a mystery. It's funny but not funny enough to ever have found a wide audience. In fact, only Orson Bean stands out. Did ZSA ZSA Gabor just want her pet lion to be in a movie? At any rate thanks for showing us Natasha Kautsky. Natasha should have had the chance to be in more films. She seems to have been more of a dancer than an actress but she shows promise here. Ben Glass, on the other hand, just doesn't come off well on screen. In fact, the only place he really fits is when he's dressed as jockey and riding a potential investor. (This movie does have brief female nudity and sexual situations--but relatively few four letter words.) But I suspect with Glass's incredible energy he may have done well as a comic actor on stage. I can find no further credits for Ben or Natasha, while the rest of the cast has gone on to more movies. Perhaps Ben and Natasha fell in love during the shooting and ran off together. I think there was chemistry there.
