Nothing says trash cinema than "trash" on the poster. Seems the more things change, the more the sexism stays the same.

Do you know what is funny about this film? (Okay, there is a lot that is funny about it.) :p
The woman in the bathtub is not even one of the main two characters. I think she is featured prominently just as a tease... and a very misleading one. The movie is a West German or British spy flick from 1959 which has been given multiple names such as "The Treasure of San Teresa" or "Long Distance" depending upon the country of release. I guess even back in 1959 marketers knew that sex sells, even if it has little to do with the product.
Here is the trailer for the film. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wd5cgkhyKbE
It contains the ever (not so) popular scene of a man forcing himself on a woman on a bed, where she yields to his dubious charms.
I'm a Hot Money Girl. Or at least I would be.
But then again, I'm trashy. :)
Awesome. Count me in as a hot money girl.
