(270) VIRGIN OF BALI (1972) Giorgio Ardisson | Haydee Politoff


original Italian title: LA VERGINE DI BALI [The Virgin of Bali]
also known as TRAFFIC EXPRESS

director: Guido Zurli
starring: Giorgio Ardisson · Haydee Politoff · Lea Lander · Isarco Ravaioli · Pedro Sanchez · Putu Widjaja


As the film opens, British gentleman banker David Rank decides to drop out of straight society [including far away from his haughty fiancée] and disappear to Indonesia, specifically Bali. His new lifestyle includes total freedom (ie, brawling, intense alcohol consummation and covorting with prostitutes) until the local police - no longer amused by his behavior - give David an ultimatum: Find a job or go back to England. He tries tourism, but fails at that. Eventually, David secures a job with a local liquor distributor but puts everything in jeopardy by bedding the wife of his boss. This all leads to a gold smuggling racket, a shootout at sea and - eventually - David falling love with Maryon, the 'Virgin of Bali.'

An enjoyable slice of Exploitation Cinema [no, they don't make 'em like this anymore] from director Guido Zurli, who occasionally used the pseudonym Albert Moore (eg, BLACK DEEP THROAT). Just prior to this film, actress Haydee Politoff made the cult hit QUEENS OF EVIL and a couple years later she starred with Paul Naschy in COUNT DRACULA'S GREAT LOVE.

Giorgio Ardisson had a career of almost 70 movies, starting with Peplums in the early '60s (including QUEEN FOR CAESAR and HERCULES IN THE HAUNTED WORLD), moving through Spaghetti Westerns (MASSACRE IN THE GRAND CANYON, Giallos (MAN, MORE POISONOUS THAN THE COBRA) and Thrillers (YOUR SWEET BODY TO KILL). He also starred in two of the worst, flabergastingly cockeyed films of all time, CROSS WITH SEVEN JEWELS and DELITTI (CRIMES). Mr Ardisson died from a heart attack at age 82, December 2014.
