I bought this video for three bucks. There were two hookers on the cover, one of them had a gun, and the tag line was "This beauty will blow you away." That's all I needed to know. As an extra bonus, "Angel III" has one of the first appearances of Julie Smith. She plays the star of the porn movie that Angel infiltrates on her quest through the L.A. underworld. There was one glaring difference between the Julie Smith we all know today and the Julie Smith of yesteryear: Her breasts had shrunk dramatically. I almost didn't recognize her. The twins have grown up nice and healthy since this movie.

Anyway, even though I could talk about Julie Smith's breasts all day long, "Angel III" is not about Smith or her breasts, it's about Angel. Angel decides to move back to L.A. so she can take out the trash. Her long lost mom gets mixed up with some pimps and pushers. Angel's sister is also lost in the sordid, vice-ridden world of L.A. Angel needs to go undercover as a porn star/hooker to uncover the truth about Maud Adams and her white slavery ring.

I enjoyed this flick. It was as sordid and sleazy as it could afford to be. Maud Adams was a sparkling jewel of fine acting compared to some of the other players. There were plenty of gratuitous naked breast shots as well. The only thing a little off about this one was Angel. Angel does not get naked. That seems odd as she is the star of this sleaze fest and she is playing either a hooker or a porn star throughout most of the movie. She also doesn't really blow anybody away. She wasn't the avenging Angel I thought she would be. But even though the Angel action was a little light, I still liked this one. The sleazy exploitation vibe coming off "Angel III" was strong. It's worth a look.

SCORE: 3 out of 4 avenging Julie Smiths
Wait a minute, this movie wasn't about Julie Smith at all! There I go again. She is an all powerful B-queen. Can't help myself when she shows up.

I saw the first one and was shocked by its tawdriness. The fact that two more were made as a sad inditement. Especially as there wasn't as much B-movie schlockfest as I would have hoped.

Batman,

I was pleased with the tawdriness of the "Angel" flicks. Of course, they could have been sleazier. There's always room for more sleaze. And it's got Julie Smith! Any B-freak worth anything should get excited by that name.

Tom DeSimone was also, of course, the director of Chatterbox, starring the late Candice Rialson, as well as the bizarre but enjoyable Reform School Girls. And yes, my pal Julie K. Smith can make almost anything worth watching.

Julie Smith makes my B-movie world go round. As a lover of fine breasts, I am hard pressed to think of any that are better than Ms. Smiths. Nikki Fritz has an incredible Amazonian body but Julie Smith takes the prize for all around babe. Although she is not a prominent part of "Angel III" or even has her amazing cleavage on display, she stilll stands out amongst the Angels.

Gail Harris is supposedly in this but I can't spot her anywhere. Somewhere in the background maybe. Does anyone know where she is?

No, thank you Julie Smith for the many mammories! A couple of crazy parties and your breasts disappears. Glad to see you found them again. Those experts do come in handy don't they?
