The US theatrical version "The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik Yak" was 87 minutes long, as opposed to the original French release of 105 minutes. Both versions are available on DVD in the USA. See more »
I have one recommendation for this movie: check your brain at the door and just enjoy the parade of flesh. The plot is the standard "I need to find X (gwen's father) at all costs" and I need the help of a "world wise" swaggering, reluctant daring-do to help me.But forget it! You probably wont see this many naked and topless babes this side of 1980 and not in a porn film.Amazingly, if you are a butt man, the version that played on TV is even better than the theatrical version.
