    White Slaver - Movie Review:

    Made in 1974 by an uncredited director, White Slaver (also known as White Slavers) opens with a blonde man and his darker-haired, mustachioed partner in crime (Bill Scott of The Undergraduate) carrying large sacks over their shoulders down a dock to a boat. The board the vessel and it turns out that each of the sacks contained a kidnapped college girl, one blonde and one with darker hair.

    The blonde man steers the boat while Mr. Moustache decides to have some fun with the brunette. He rapes her, but she doesn’t put up much of a fight, though to be fair, she probably has no idea where she is or where she’s going and dude is brandishing a knife at her so it’s hard to fault her. Getting stabbed would suck. Either way, he has his way with her only to then come under fire from the woman in charge, a stern looking lady clad in black lingerie with a terrible complexion. When we first see her, she’s sucking back a cold bottle of Coors and flicking the bean. When she finds out that her employee has been sampling the goods, she’s none too happy. She then decides she’ll have some fun of her own with the kidnapped girls and we’re treated to the requisite lesbian scene and then a scene where the stern looking Coors drinker gets it on with the moustache guy.

    But before we get ahead of ourselves, the blonde guy who was steering the boat fools around with the blonde victim, though he promises not to hurt her. There’s the suggestion here that they actually like one another, something that the girls will try and use to their advantage later one. It turns out that the girls are to be sold to a bearded grease-ball for the paltry sum of one thousand dollars each! Realizing what fate has in store for them, the girls, with some help from the ‘nice’ blond guy, plan an escape – but will they succeed?

    Shot fast and cheap and lasting less than an hour in length, White Slaver is really, really light on plot. Marketed as a roughie, only the first scene is actually rough in nature, as the first girl is raped at knife point. The rest of the sex is semi-consensual, and some of it even tender (when the blonde guy has sex with the blonde girl) which is weird. None of it is particularly arousing, however, and the fact that it’s all shot in the inside of a not particularly fancy boat means that it more or less all looks the same. The cast aren’t particularly attractive and there isn’t much acting going on, the kidnapping victims never really reacting to anything that happens to them.

    Still, it’s short (it doesn’t even have any credits, just a title card) and over with pretty quickly and it does feature some decent (and familiar sounding…) jazz on the soundtrack. And can you really hate on a movie where a woman masturbates while chugging a bottle of Coors?

    White Slaver - DVD Review:

    Impulse Pictures has transferred White Slaver from a worn and faded print. Framed at 1.33.1 fullframe, which would appear to be the right framing for this material, the transfer is very obviously at the mercy of the available elements, which are more than a little beat up. It’s perfectly watchable in the way that ‘grindhouse prints’ of old, obscure XXX moves like this can be, but it obviously hasn’t been cleaned up or restored. Expect the occasional frame jump, color fading in spots and print damage throughout. This does look quite a bit better than the version that was included in the Alpha Blue Archives Brutal Underground DVD collection that came out years back.

    The English language Dolby Digital Mono track is also in pretty rough shape and unfortunately there are no subtitles here. At the same time, there isn’t a ton of dialogue here and the story, such as it is, happens to be pretty easy to follow. Some dialogue sounds perfectly clear, some sounds pretty muffled. It is what it is, and again, the elements were clearly less than perfect.

    Aside from a static menu offering scene selection, the disc also includes a preview of the Impulse Pictures 42nd Street Forever collection that contains three quick, silent 8mm XXX loops: Vogue, Good Help Isn't Hard To Find and Liquid Plumber.

    White Slaver - The Final Word:

    White Slaver isn’t exactly good, it’s remarkably basic and clearly made fast and cheap, but it’s a marginally interesting relic of no-budget seventies smut. Impulse Pictures’ DVD release is pretty light on extras but offers the film in better shape than we’ve seen it before, even if it’s clearly unrestored or in particularly nice shape.
