Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS (1975, USA) C-96m. ** D: Don Edmonds. Starring Dyanne Thorne, Gregory Knoph, Tony Mumolo, Maria Marx, C.D. Lafleur (=George 'Buck' Flower), Uschi Digard, David F. Friedman. One of the most influential Nazisploitation films. The title character is a sexy blond German prison camp commander, who gets her kicks out of torturing, abusing and having sex with her prisoners. Initial interest wears off when it becomes clear that the film has no plot, but Thorne's physique is amazing (she was 42 shen this was made!). Typical exploitation film was so successful, it spawned three sequels and many imitations. Followed by ILSA, HAREM-KEEPER OF THE OIL SHEIKS.
