Picks and Pans Review: Girls of the White Orchid
What happens to the multitude of dedicated young actresses and dancers who flock to Hollywood each year? If we are to believe this seamy TV movie, a good many are sold into white slavery. Yes sir, that's what happens to Jennifer (Fast Times at Ridgemont High) Jason Leigh, who signs a four-month contract to be a nightclub entertainer in Japan, only to find out that she was expected to provide entertainment of another kind. Tom (Boone) Byrd co-stars as Jennifer's loyal love interest, who follows her to the Far East. Trash.
