This is a rare film.

In many older adult movies, the stories are frequently far more interesting than the sex. That's how I feel about ILLUSIONS OF A LADY.

It's got some surreal elements, which I like a lot.

I also like the camera work.

Andrea True's character is tormented... The devil in Dr. Woolf?....

Andrea True ( 1943 – 2011 ), plays a shrink. Some of her clients are portrayed by Helen Madigan, Jamie Gillis, and others.

The movie was written by Anthony Fall and Jonas Middleton

The very very cute Helen Madigan.....

The film, was also directed by Jonas Middleton.

As you may know, Mr. Middleton was also involved with JUST BEFORE DAWN.

Quotes from SHE LEFT MOVIES TO BECOME A STAR ( May 26, 1977 - Spartanburg SC ).....

"She said she appeared in some 25 low-budget movies between the ages of 24 and 26"

"Andrea, in a meaningful voice, says she is through with the movies"

"I'm sick of it. I don't even want to talk about it"

Quotes from ANDREA TRUE ARRIVES AS STAR SINGER ( July 24, 1976 - Nashua NH ).....

"I produced and hosted a show called "Teen Beat". I also did a radio show and then won a scholship to study at George Peabody School in Nashville"

Quotes from AP ( Feb. 25, 1976 ).....

"At the mention of Linda Lovelace, star of "Deep Throat", the veteran of some 100 X-rated movies told an interviewer. "Now she's a porno queen. I'm an actress. I've told her to stay out of my hometown. I told her never to come to Nashville"

I think ILLUSIONS OF A LADY was released on VHS by ALPHA BLUE ARCHIVES, but I'm NOT certain.

As for a pressed DVD, I don't think one exists in the United States.

FYI: I watched it online, for free.

  1. Funniest thing ever: actor Cyril Ritchard (who played Captain Hook in the 1960 Mary Martin version of Peter Pan) reciting in Shakespearian tones (!) the lyrics to "More, More, More" (!) on TV in the 70s. Laughed my ass off!
