The Adventures of Busty Brown (1967)

Barry Mahon’s movies often have no plot, just women being whatever he thinks women are. This time, however, it’s all about a female detective named Busty Brown* (Laurie Dane’s only role) as she helps an Asian shopkeeper keep his daughter (Lotus Lee) from dancing nude in a go-go bar for one of his rivals. Of course, it’s against her will and Busty must protect her innocence.

The incredibly woke thing — for 1967 — is that the Asian male sidekick is presented as a sex symbol and has scenes where he makes love — seriously, this movie is near PG-13 in its 2021 level of sleaze — to white women, which had to seem groundbreaking or upsetting depending on your levels of racism in 1967.

“She broke the case with every weapon she had available!” sure sounds better than “Barry Mahon made this movie in only two days!”

*Did the title clue you in?
