Walk the Angry Beach (Hollywood After Dark) (The Unholy Choice) Reviews
The Film Crew version - 4 stars.
I honestly don't get the Rue McClanahan thing. Okay, admittedly, people didn't know that she was going to be a Golden Girl, but she wasn't even attractive at a young age, let alone stripper attractive. You look at Shirley MacLaine...I was in love with her in The Apartment. Rue McClanahan makes me want to punch her even at a young age. Good God.
Then there's the absolutely wacky story. I don't get why there is a heist. Why couldn't we focus simply on the, albeit, lame emotional turmoil that this dancer has to go through for respect? I imagine it has a lot to do with the fact that there are no skilled filmmakers involved with this movie, so it's got that going for it. Anyway, I'm saying not to watch this movie unless you watch the Film Crew edition of it. That's all it is really good for...a hearty laugh.
It's your typical story about a young girl going to Hollywood to try and find fame but only ends up getting stuck working at a strip club and getting involved with seedy characters.
Only this movie is more depressing, and boring.
If you ever want some pure nightmare fuel, stick around for the scene where Rue strips in front of an audience. You don't get to see her money-maker, but I can tell you one thing for sure: It's a horrifying sight.
I recommend you pick up the Film Crew's version of the film distributed by Shout! Factory, at least that has a hilarious commentary.
