Dena and the Baron battle gangsters on the streets of downtown Cleveland in a quest for $100,000, leading to many murders, double crosses and a final foot chase.
With anonymous locations and dubbing that’s almost as disorienting as a Doris Wishman film, it’s hard to ascertain exactly where Platinum Pussycat originates from — at times it looks decidedly American while other times it could easily pass for a Euro sexploiter complete with a clash of styles that certainly adds to the film’s schizophrenic nature.
