Edwin Brown – China Girl (1975)
Here’s a IMDB user’a review:
Let me first begin by saying that this film may not be for everyone. People expecting wall to wall sex will probably get bored with the film early on:The first sex scene doesn’t happen until nearly thirty minutes into the movie, and the overall movie has about 4 sex scenes. But what scenes they are! And the plot is executed so well that it could stand by itself and still make for an entertaining movie.
The plot centers around an Asian crime syndicate known as Dragon, which is hired to steal the formula to a chemical substance that enables total memory recall. As the movie progresses, you learn that most of the scientists associated with the R&D of this compound have been abducted and interrogated by Dragon; unfortunately for the syndicate, they were all associated with coming up with uses for the substance and have no knowledge as to its structure.
Enter Drs. Olinski(played by a lucky bastard I’ve never seen before) and Hartgrave (played by the illustrious Annette Haven), the two principal researchers on this drug.
The US government, concerned by all the kidnappings, assigns two security agents to guard the good doctors. Nevertheless, Dragon manages to kidnap both: First Olinski, then Hartgrave.
The lady in charge of the local chapter of Dragon, a certain Madam Wu (Pamela Yen), believes that pleasure can be just as effective as pain in extracting information from people. The scene where this theory is first put to the test (on the male Dr. Olinski) is one of the hottest, most erotic scenes I have ever seen in an adult movie. Rather than try to paint a verbal picture that probably wouldn’t do the scene justice, suffice it to say that it involves a drug that won’t let you climax, a bed, and three women – four if you count the exotic dancer
Similar treatment awaits Dr. Hartgrave (Annette Haven), but with a decidedly lesbian twist. I’m not a fan of this type of sex, but I couldn’t help but smile at the image of Ms. Haven surrounded by four nubile females. I suspect fans of this genre will find an erotic charge to be had here.
The other two scenes are between Annette Haven and her government “protector” (don’t know his identity) and between Madam Wu and Haven. The former came across as “tender” somehow, although I don’t think that was the intent; the latter came across as lesbian and that WAS the intent (but alas, not something I tend to enjoy).
Overall, I like this movie. A lot. There are no cum-oriented themes in this movie, so fans of raunch will probably find this film too tame. And people that hate plots in their adult films will also not like this movie and will spend most of their time holding the FF button down. But if you find that a good plot does indeed add a little something to an adult film, then I think you’ll find that you can’t go wrong with “China Girl”.
