The Manhandlers (1974)


I did not know anything about the movie and all the actors are unknown. Except Rosalind Miles who was in “Shaft’s Big Score!”(1972) plus one episode of “Columbo”, one of “Baretta” and one of “Starsky and Hutch”. Seeing the title and the poster, I thought I’d see a movie like “Charlie’s Angels”(1976-1981) or Mama’s Dirty Girls”(1974). But the reality is quite different. Don’t be fooled by the poster on IMDb, you will not see the girls in the film manipulating machine guns. You will only see them doing massages and you will see them naked at some point. The movie begins as a mob movie with one killing after another, but after that it becomes just a very soft porn and a very soft comedy. Watch it only if you do not have anything better to do…
