The last film to date of the highly talented Stephanie Rothman, whose disappearance from active filmmaking ranks with the most regrettable developments of that nose-dive decade. Unfortunately, The Working Girls finds Rothman plainly fed up with the limitations of the exploitation genre, and the wit, stylistic assurance, and feminist subtexts she was able to insert in her earlier work in the field (The Student Nurses, The Velvet Vampire) are largely lacking here. Sarah Kennedy, Laurie Rose, and Lynne Guthrie are three overeducated women looking for some kind of employment in the wasteland of southern California; Solomon Sturges (son of Preston), Mary Beth Hughes, and Cassandra Peterson costar (1974).
