Exploitation Films Explained

If a movie is a cowboy western you know exactly what to expect . . . If a movie is classified as a crime adventure, you know there will be cops and robbers . . . If a movie is called a romantic comedy you can be sure that after many humorous mishaps a boy and a girl will find love . . . . But what the heck is an 'exploitation' movie, and who gets exploited? . . . Well, here is my take on the exploitation movies of the 1950's . . . a unique period in the history of film when independent producers, free of the chains of the big movie studios, made a bevy of exploitation movies. From the beginning of movies there have always been movie plots that are basically "Mother, warn your children" themes that would attempt to show audiences the dangers in the big wild world that they might not be aware of. Exploitation movies are a sub-set of the movies that tried to educate audiences to the dangers around them. Exploitation movies focused on the lurid side of life . . . particularly sex and drugs. This Swedish story is the perfect example. An American newspaper reporter is sent to Sweden to write a series of newspaper stories about the morals of Swedish women . . . yeah, right . . . I'm on board with that . . . . Anyway, this guy gets tangled up with a drug dealer who is keeping his girlfriend full of dope, and the reporter will try to help the blonde in bondage escape the chains of drug addiction and break up the drug ring. It sounds like a crime adventure, but there is more. Now the exploitation part . . . The producer would have us believe that every girl in Sweden is gorgeous, and every Swedish girl wants to kiss the American reporter. The effect that this guy has on pretty Swedish girls makes James Bond look like a wall-flower at a party . . . . Then the American reporter meets the blonde in bondage . . . Mona Mace, a singing stripper who tells the reporter that her show makes every other glamour girl in Sweden look like an amateur. The reporter tells Mona that he wants to help her get free from her drug addiction and from her drug dealing boyfriend. When she asks him why he would want to help poor little Mona, he tells her that sometimes a fellow just sees a girl and wants to help her . . . It is certainly not because she is drop-dead gorgeous and likes to take her clothes off every chance she gets . . . . Of course not . . . . I'm buying all of this so far . . . . You too? . . . The producer will toss in a pair of street-walking prostitutes in a hair-pulling fist fight over who will get the reporter . . . You still on board with this? . . . Okay . . . That is exploitation, and who is it that gets exploited? . . . You and me, my friend, the suckers who put out good money only to be titillated by beautiful Swedish girls . . . You say that you don't need to put out any money to watch this story on my web site? You are absolutely correct . . . so you say that maybe it isn't exploitation? . . . . hmmmm . . . . Now I'm confused . . . . I think I'll pop another big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm, melted butter drizzled over it and watch the show again.
