In yesterday's posting I mentioned the 1975 film Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS. A Canadian production, the film played a lot at the Astral Theatre in CFB Borden (Ontario, Canada) when I lived there. Surprisingly enough, this history buff has to this day never seen the film.
My friend Chris has. He dragged his father off to see Ilsa when it ran at the Muskoka Drive-In. Chris told me the story a couple of years later, and when he did, I laughed. Knowing his father, a super nice man, by the way, I could picture the two of them sitting in their car, watching this piece of pure exploitation.
"My dad kept wanting to leave and I said 'no, no, let's stay! I wanna see what happens!'"
Correction, October 14th: I made adjustments to reflect information given to me by "Chris". On Thursday, October 12th, I wrote a new piece using that appreciated intelligence. (The original title of this posting was "Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS, at the Astral".)
That was a Canadian production!?!?!? Wow!
