The Big Doll House
Director: Jack Hill
Length: 95 minutes
Cast: Judy Brown, Roberta Collins, Pam Grier, Brooke Mills, Sid Haig
In the subgenre of the Women in Prison flicks this entry produced by the king of the B-film Roger Corman counts as one its finest. It has all the elements that a WIP flick needs: sadistic prison keepers, a tyrannical female director, wild fights, coarse language and nudity.
Pam Grier plays a lesbian prostitute in her first big role. After this she appeared in other exploitation films like Foxy Brown and Coffy (also directed by Jack Hill) thanks to which she became a household name. In 1997 she made a strong come-back with Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown. Another familiar face in The Big Doll House is the charismatic Sid Haig, who worked with Grier six times.
This film is part of the theme program �Grindhouse�.
Screening: Sa. 29 Sept., 14.00 h, large auditorium
