A would-be actress learns the hard way about the dirty underside of show business in this sleazy bit of black and white sexploitation. Lyn (Mary McRea) came to Hollywood to become an actress, but so far her only job in show business has been working as a secretary for Barney Merritt (Larry Martinelli), a producer of fly-by-night sex films. When Lyn learns that Barney is having trouble casting the leading role in his next picture, a "roughie," Lyn asks him for the part ("I'm sure I can act and one doesn't have to be the greatest actress to be in one of these films"). Barney isn't convinced that giving the role to Lyn would be a good idea, so she hires Gerry (Gary M. Fox), a photographer, to take some nude cheesecake shots of her to persuade the producer she has what it takes. Gerry falls hard for Lyn after they enjoy a brief tryst at his studio, and she's taken with him as well, but ironically his photos help keep her away from him when Lyn gets the role in the film. Barney assures Lyn that if she really wants the part she has to sleep with him, and before long his sexually ambidextrous wife Billie (Margo Stevens) also has her eye on the would-be starlet and insists that she move into their home.
