Joan Collins double bill. In 'The Stud', waiter Tony Blake (Oliver Tobias) becomes manager of a hip discotheque by sleeping with his boss's insatiable wife, Fontaine Khaled (Collins), but the life bores him and he returns to his East End roots. In the sequel 'The Bitch', Fontaine still lives entirely for pleasure, but she may have bitten off more than even she can chew when she embarks on a passionate affair with a young man on the run from the Mafia.

Joan Collins portrays Fontaine Khalid(some name eh?) a wealthy disco owner who also has a voracious sexual appetite. Becoming involved (not emotionally) with Tony Blake, played by Oliver Tobias, an ambitious young man who desperately wants to own his own disco. They share a strong sexual relationship which eventually destroys her marriage to a wealthy businessman. There are some hilarious scenes in this, and some rather raunchier scenes too. Guest stars are Emma Jacobs, along with Sue Lloyd and Mark Burns.
The Bitch I rather enjoyed as slightly better of the two. Once again, Fontaine Khalid wheels and deals her way through various men for sexual pleasure, and others for business purposes. Set around the high class area behind The Hilton and Park Lane Hotels, it provides glimpses of what London was like in those far off days. Guest stars are Michael Coby, Ian Hendry, Sue Lloyd and Mark Burns. An enjoyable romp.
As for the DVD presentations, I found the picture quality and sound not too bad at all considering that the ages of both films are more than 30 years old. There are trailers available and little else.
Worth buying considering the low price which is great value.
The quality of the DVD picture isn't as great as you'd think though; it's as if they've just lifted them from the old VHS tape. There are no extras either - simply trailers for other similar films/sequels. To sum up: a good period piece with a fab soundtrack, but quite frankly, if you wanted high-class entertainment, what are you doing watching these sort of films anyway?
Like many I recall seeing these two films at my local ABC Cinema during the late 1970’s and remember finding them highly amusing. They have dated badly due to the fashions of the day, the cars, the 70’s disco music and decor/settings.
Joan Collins portrays the nymphomaniac Fontaine Khalid a wealthy but bored glamorous night club owner who becomes involved sexually with Tony Blake, played by a young Oliver Tobias, a guy with ambitions to own his own glossy up market night club. They share a strong sexual relationship but she is clumsy and this eventually destroys her marriage to a wealthy businessman. There are some unintentionally hilarious scenes and equally hilarious soft porn scenes.
The follow up, The Bitch, was lacking for me but once again we find the glamorous Fontaine Khalid wheeling and dealing her way through various men for sexual pleasure, and others for business purposes. But is she about to get her fingers burned?
Joan Collins looks her usual glamorous self and some of her costumes were designed by the late great Bill Gibb and also the British designer Bruce Oldfield.
Joan Collins tried to promote the films as serious dramas, but both films were generally totally panned by critics, but they were nevertheless both commercial successes and helped to revive Joan Collins' flagging career.Read more ›
It isn't a bad idea for a movie really, a fellow tries to obtain preferment in his working life by using his sexual prowess. He really doesn't have sex with any one that he wouldn't like to have sex with in any other circumstances. That's the idea of the movie - a sort of 1970's version of Kirk Macambley is the Oliver Tobias figure.
Unless I have it wrong I think that the old, late and unlamented British Leyland paid to have their Triumph TR7 product placed in this movie. In a way this is quite apt, it's a celluloid version of a Triumph TR7 if you see what I mean. Which is to say, it wasn't a bad concept to try and realise. ..thing is, some how or other.....
I suppose that if you're my age and you recall the moral outrage that the original movie provoked in the 1970's and you, like me, brushed off the dirtiest ever look from the cashier that sold me the ticket [ did I actually brush it off though - given that I stil remember it now ? ] then perhaps it's worth the money.
The movie comes with the sequel to 'The Stud' a movie called 'The Bitch' in with it. Kenneth Hague must have needed the cash, no other rationale........
