Fontaine Khaled is the London wife of a wealthy but boring businessman. She spends his money on her nightclub, Hobo, and partying. She hires a manager, Tony, to run her club, but it is understood that his job security is dependent on his satisfying her nymphomaniac demands. Tony loses interest in Fontaine, and turns his attention to her young stepdaughter, who uses him to get back at Fontaine for cheating on her father. Fontaine then dumps Tony.

At the end of the film she is Paris but was actually filmed in a health club in London's Covent Garden. In one scene Collins was shown naked on a swing. The film was banned or cut in many countries.


Made for $600,000 (US) it netted over $20,000,000 internationally.[1] The sequel, The Bitch, proved to be a larger hit. Tobias later claimed that his typecasting in the film ruined his career, while Joan Collins credited the film for relaunching her own.



A successful soundtrack album was released to tie in with the film. The album contained 20 tracks, including original material penned by Biddu specifically for the film, as well as a number of major British chart hits dating back as far as 1975 which were licensed for use in the film. A majority of the tracks were disco flavoured, although some non-disco tracks were also included. The album rose to number 2 on the UK albums chart.[2] Tracks featured in the film and on the album included:
