Cheap sexploitation flick about cheap sexploitation flicks is better than you’d suspect.

The sexploitation film Starlet, featuring Deirdre Nelson as an actress trying make it big in Hollywood, and Shari Mann as the roommate who is swept along for the ride, is a more serious film than the festive promo poster suggests. It’s sort of like a low budget Valley of the Dolls, with quite a bit of mise-en-abîme action devoted to the process of shooting low budget nudie flicks. You can see a trailer for Starlet here, and for you BDSM types, check this rather amusing clip of Shari Mann being whipped by pilgrims during a take from one of the films-within-a-film, as her director and a few producers stand by shaking their heads at the atrocious quality of her acting. We shook our heads a few times too, but the movie remains worth a look. Starlet premiered in the U.S. today in 1969.
