Deadly Weapons [DVD] [1970]

Chesty Morgan bares it all for the silver screen in director Doris Wishman's goofily titled Deadly Weapons. Presented in 1.33:1 full frame, this transfer sports a lot of dirt, grain, and other imperfections that tend to mar the image (this is not surprising considering the film's low-budget nature). However, the bulk of the colors and black levels are generally even and solid. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 1.0 Mono and is sufficiently flat and boring. While a small amount of distortion is featured in the dialogue, overall, the mix is free of hiss or other audio imperfections. No alternate soundtracks or subtitles are included on this disc. The extra features on this disc are scant -- included in the supplements section is a rather funny educational short on how to make your bust line bigger (if you're female), a short gallery of exploitation art, and a few theatrical trailers.

Synopsis

Deadly Weapons
Extremely top-heavy exotic dancer Chesty Morgan (billed on screen as Zsa Zsa, though the name Chesty Morgan appeared in all the film's advertising) made her screen debut in this wildly improbable crime story written and directed by Doris Wishman. Crystal (Morgan) is an advertising executive who has fallen in love with Larry (Greg Reynolds), a hoodlum working for a mysterious crime boss with a trademark scar on his right hand. While ransacking the home of a rival gangster, Larry finds and pockets an address book which will provide him plenty of blackmail material on his colleagues; when two of them, smart-suited and mustachioed Tony (Harry Reems, whose name is misspelled "Harry Reemes" in the credits) and one-eyed Captain Hook suspect Larry is holding out on them, they kill him and set out to find the book. However, Larry already gave it to Crystal for safe keeping, and when she learns her man is dead, she sets out to find Tony and Hook and get revenge. Inexperienced with a gun, Crystal kills her enemies using the weapons nature gave her -- she smothers men with her massive 73-inch bust. Deadly Weapons was a commercial breakthrough for Doris Wishman, who had been making low-budget sexploitation films since 1960; Wishman and Morgan would team up again for Double Agent 73. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
