A woman well versed in the ways of love makes a deal with the devil in this sexploitation opus set during biblical times. Jezebel (Christine Murray) was a passionate sensualist who met her fate when Joshua (Johnny Rocco) turned his back on her and threw her to his dogs, who tore her apart. Jezebel's new home is Hades, where Satan (Christopher Stone) is in a state of constant lust but cannot find the one sort of woman he craves most -- a virgin. Eager to punish Joshua for his betrayal, Jezebel persuades Satan to allow her to return to Earth for a few hours, but he agrees only under the condition that she find another soul to take her place while she's gone. Jezebel is able to persuade the beautiful but virtuous Rachael (Dixie Donovan) to trade places with her by offering Rachael a way out of her marriage to Jeremiah (Jay Edwards), a rotund military officer with a severe shortage of charm whose marriage to Rachael was arranged by Joshua. During her short stay on Earth, Jezebel is able to blackmail Joshua and convince Jeremiah to abandon his engagement to Rachael, though the young girl's virtue does take a wrong turn along the way. The Joys of Jezebel was directed by Peter Perry, though the fictional "A. P. Stootsberry" received screen credit.
