Bitch, The (1979)

Dreadful but equally commercially successful sequel to the tedious kitsch classic, The Stud (1978). Joan Collins reprises her role as the sex-mad diva, Fontaine, for further sleazy adventures in the fast lane.

Promiscuous nightclub owner Fontaine Khaled (Collins) meets Nico (Antonio Cantafora) on a plane from New York to London. She is immediately attracted to his charm but he’s a diamond smuggler with an ulterior motive in making himself agreeable to her.

In Fontaine’s absence, her once-popular Mayfair club has become untrendy and her accountant warns that she can no longer afford her lavish lifestyle.

Meanwhile, both Nico and Fontaine have to contend with the mafia muscling in.
