The Bitch

Released 1979
Distributor Thorn EMI

Every good film deserves a sequel. And then there’s The Stud which got one, too. Sister act Joan and Jackie Collins followed up their mega-smash with 1979’s The Bitch which continues the bed-hopping adventures of Fontaine Khaled, the glamorous disco-owner still looking for love in all the wrong places. Remarkably, Joan’s star continued to rise; The Stud and The Bitch opened the door to her long-running role on TV’s Dynasty.
