The notorious exploitation entry which jumpstarted an entire “roughie” genre of S&M-tinged exploitation films that lit up (or darkened?) New York City’s 42nd street grindhouse cinemas for years. Audrey Cambell plays Olga, a sadistic jewel-thieving madame, hiding out in an abandoned mine and exacting all kinds of misery upon those who defy her – told in oddball semi-documentary style. As with all essentially forgotten grindhouse films of this era, it is astonishing that any original materials exist on OLGA at all, and byNWR has created a complete version at the highest standards possible.
