"The Big Doll House" is the film thats, along with its follow-up (notexactly sequel) "The Big Bird Cage", mainly kicked off the whole WomenIn Prison exploitation subgenre. The surprising thing is that its notnearly as exploitive as other entries in the genre. Sure, there's theobligatory shower sequences and sadistic guards and wardens, but thefemale prisoners are shown in a genuinely positive light with lots ofdetermination and smarts. I'm not saying its some kind of feministmasterpiece, but its more politically correct than most entries. JackHill was always one of the most intelligent drive-in filmmakers. Hisdirection is skilled and keeps everything moving at a quick andexciting pace.

The acting all around is quite accomplished for a b-movie as well. Asthe heroines, Roberta Collins and Judy Brown create compelling andsympathetic tough girls who are easy to root for. Pam Grier is in this,but shes merely given a supporting role. Her real breakthrough tosuper-stardom came with the blaxploitation classic "Coffy" two yearslater (also directed by Hill). Sid Haig and Christiane Schmidtmer bothoffer good sleazy support. As the sympathetic and reform minded doctor,Jack Davis offers the dullest portrayal in the film, but hes really notan important role. "The Big Doll House" is one of the most importantexploitation films of the decade if far from the best. Its stillenjoyable to watch nowadays. (6/10)

'The Big Doll House' may not be the first women in prison movie of the 1970sbut it was one of the most influential, kicking off the short lived butlegendary Made-in-the-Philippines-but-set-in-some-nameless-Banana-republiccycle. The tape I watched was part of "The Pam Grier Collection" but to sayGrier is the STAR of this movie is an exaggeration. Judy Brown is the starand Roberta Collins is equally important as Grier. But Brown didn't do allthat much after this, and Collins is only remembered by exploitation buffs(for 'Caged Heat', 'Death Race 200' and 'Eaten Alive'), while Grier became ablaxploitation icon. That's cool, but let's not fool ourselves here. Asenjoyable as it is watching Pam in this one she really doesn't do all thatmuch. Jack Hill regular Sid Haig ('Spider Baby') has some memorable andamusing schtick with her. He plays a horny guy who brings the femaleprisoners food and other treats for cash. Grier and Haig obviously made agreat team, and Hill would exploit this in his even more enjoyable 'The BigBird Cage', which isn't a sequel to this movie as many seem to think. 'BirdCage' is the better movie, but 'Doll House' is still a pretty good moviethat any fan of 1970s b-grade movies will get a kick outof.

The Big Doll House was followed-up by The Big Bird Cage a year later.The two films do not follow on from each other; but are very similar instyle and content. While this film is not quite as great as the laterone; it's still an excellent women in prison flick. The film was shotin the Philippines and set in some backwater country; but we don't getthe same great outdoor shots that we got in the later film, and most ofthis film takes place in the classic, dingy, prison setting. That,however, is not a problem; as a constant stream of sleaze and actionwill keep most viewers from worrying about where it's taking place.Naturally, the film takes place in a prison where most of the prisonershave little chance of release. A new girl enters the prison and is putin with a motley crew of female prisoners. It's not long before theconditions inside the jail force the girls into planning an escape; butnot before various rivalries amongst themselves are sorted out.

This film is just great fun to watch, and that's what makes it sosuccessful. The script is rather ridiculous; but there's plenty oflaughs to be had with it too so it doesn't matter. The biggest names inthe cast belong to Sid Haig and Pam Grier; although neither one of themis the star. As would be the case with the later film, Sid Haigprovides the most memorable role; this time as a pervy bloke that goesround delivers various goodies to the female prisoners. Most of therest of the cast are nice to look at, as is standard for films likethis. The Big Doll House is a rather lighter affair than the women inprison films by the likes of Jess Franco et al; but it's all the betterfor it. There's plenty of action to keep the pulses racing, includingvarious cat fights, arguments and gun fights. There's also a series ofrather trippy torture scenes, which seem weirdly out of place in thefilm. The Big Doll House boils down to an explosive ending and overallI wouldn't hesitate to name this as one of the all time best women inprison films (although The Big Bird Cage is slightly better).
