Rather than condemning rape, it was thought to exploit and sensationalize the crime and had to be drastically edited after preview audiences despised a lengthy rape-bondage sequence. The film's tagline attempted to emphasize women's empowerment: The story of a woman's outrage and a woman's revenge.
The spiteful and creepy Gordon Stuart Chris Sarandon , the music teacher of her younger sister, was let into the apartment. Feeling rejected again, he suddenly brutalized her, threw her around her apartment, and angrily asked: He had tied her down to her bed with silk scarves and ran a knife blade across her body. The Exploitative Rape Sequence The rapist was brought to trial, but acquitted of the rape charges, to the dismay of prosecutor Carla Bondi Anne Bancroft.

During dinner at a restaurant, she related her unhappy, soul-dead personal life and sexual inadequacies, and how she passionately breathed and lived her work, television and high ratings: I had six years of analysis and pretended to be sane. My husband ran off with his boyfriend, and I had an affair with my analyst, who told me I was the worst lay he'd ever had. I can't tell you how many men have told me what a lousy lay I am. I apparently have a masculine temperament.
I arouse quickly, consummate prematurely, and can't wait to get my clothes back on and get out of that bedroom. I seem to be inept at everything except my work. I'm good at my work. So I confine myself to that. All I want out of life is a 30 share and a 20 rating. Let the federal government sue us. We'll take them to the Supreme Court.
We'll be front page. We'll be front page for months. We'll have more press than Watergate! All I need is six weeks federal litigation and the 'Mao Tse-tung Hour' can start carrying its own time slot.
What's really bugging me now is my daytime programming. NBC's got a lock on daytime with their lousy game shows, and I'd like to bust them. I'm thinking of doing a homosexual soap opera.

The Giant Orgy l to r: The film's dialogue was in vulgar Latin and required English sub-titles. The plot was inspired by the image in a Renaissance painting of a martyred Saint Sebastian - ordered killed by Emperor Diocletian, who had him stripped naked, tied to a pole and shot through with arrows.
In historical fact, Sebastian was clubbed to death and his body deposited in a Roman sewer in A. The opening sequence was a 4th century Roman orgy in the decadent court of Diocletian. During the festivities, body-painted naked men, with comically-exaggerated giant penises danced around a savagely-painted, white-washed lead dancer Lindsay Kemp.
The main story was about Christian palace guard soldier in the Roman Imperial Troops named: Sebastiane Leonardo Treviglio The defiant guard was sent or exiled to a remote Sardinian outpost camp with eight soldiers - "nowhere to go, no one to fight, nothing to do.

You're so drunk, you're impotent. As for it, you Christian whore. Sebastiane, I love you. You are so beautiful.
