Synopsis
Polish-born stripper Chesty Morgan showcased her 73" bust in this first of two exploitation films for cult-director Doris Wishman. As Agent 73, a character first introduced in Wishman's The Immoral Three, Morgan smothers criminals to death with her gigantic breasts. Although some may find the film worth watching for curiosity value alone, it is hopelessly dull and wretchedly made. Co-star Harry Reems went on to great fame (and several obscenity busts) for his roles in Deep Throat and other popular hardcore films, while Morgan returned the following year in Wishman's Double Agent 73. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide

A frightening, funny Doris Wishman classic! by Brujaria August 19, 2003 - 10:17 AM PDT

First off, let me throw out a disclaimer and say that going into a Doris Wishman flick, I am under no delusions that the chicks that will be romping around in her films are going to be "hot". I mean, I think she's personally funny as hell (her Incredibly Strange Film Show episode is a must see for oldie exploitation fans) and the few movies I've seen of hers are damned entertaining, but... Chesty Morgan is just freakin' nasty. I mean scary-ass, middle-aged, out of shape, fat, flabby, saggy, veiny with a cheap wig and a mouth full of rotting teeth kinda nasty.

The plot is classic Wishman. Morgan's boyfriend crosses the mob and gets rubbed out by Harry Reems (who is mistakenly credited by Green Cine as Harry Reeves) and some dude with an eye patch called Dr Hook. Morgan was conveniently on the phone with now dead boyfriend and overhears the shooting and the mobsters' plans to hole up at specific hotels - which they conveniently discuss over the corpse and off the hook telephone.

Morgan decides to get all primped up (in the most horrific outfits imaginable that sport bubbles of saggy, fat flesh bursting out around the seams) and hunt them down, against her father's wishes, using the only weapons at her disposal - yes, her Deadly Weapons!

The best part is the ending... But I can't spoil it for you can I?

I couldn't even count how many shots there were of Morgan's flabby, veiny, stretch-mark ridden cleavage. So many in fact that I swear after finishing the movie, all I wanted to do was watch something completely sexless like Mary Poppins just to get the taste out of my mouth. Course Julie Andrews does sport a nice pair - ever see S.O.B.?

Wonderfully terrible. The published date of this movie is 1970, but I could have sworn the Roman-numeral copyright in the credits said MCMLXXX (1980). Honestly, I couldn't figure out which was correct as I watched this. A friend of mine assures me that 1970 is probably correct, however.

Cheesy story, bad acting, terrible editing, weird tint changes that make you wonder whether the director was going for a "mod" effect or just screwing up the color temperature.

The story (with some spoilers, but it's hard to describe without them because there's so little to it): Chesty Morgan (billed as "Zsa Zsa" in this flick) plays the newlywed wife of a mobster who tries to one-up his boss, then gets offed for it. She finds out the killers are taking a trip to Vegas, and decides that burlesque dancing is her ticket to tracking them down. Her ample assets land her a job quickly, and when she ultimately finds the killers, she takes a unique approach to her revenge--she seduces them, drugs them, and then, well, smothers them (you can guess how).

Don't worry, I haven't given away everything. There is a surprise ending, but graduates of Screenwriting 101 will probably see it coming a mile away.

Most memorable moment: When the half-naked Ms. Morgan puts her arms straight up over her head before closing in for the kill, accentuated by a loud electronic KA-BOOO-O-O-OOOOMM. Priceless.

Great material for those who want to play the home game of MST3K. Unrated, as far as I can tell, but it's probably nothing worse than an R or even a borderline PG-13 by today's standards.

Something Weird has also included a bonus: "Breast Development," a short film from the '50s or early '60s, basically a nudie film that's thinly (very, very thinly) disguised as educational. I found the breast-pump demonstration mildly disturbing.
