This cheapo melodrama was filmed in 1971, long before Mickey Rooney's celebrated comeback via The Black Stallion. Rooney plays a looney film director who acts out his fantasies before an audience of one: an ingenue whom he has kidnapped and spirited away to a deserted movie warehouse. "B"-film perennial Luana Anders also appears in this R-rated thriller. Released theatrically in December 1971, B.J. Lang Presents found a home on cable television in the mid-1980s.
