Lina Romay in Women Behind Bars

Lina Romay, star of most of her lover Jess Franco's Women in Prison and Generally Women Without Clothes films. By now many know that it was announced Lina Romay passed away on February 15th from cancer. I watched my first Lina-starring movie less than a month ago. Needless to say, I am uber-late to the fanclub.
It's actually a bit reserved for a Jess Franco film. Although you will get to see the rest of what the above picture has to offer with her open shirt. There was a robbery plan to steal a treasure that went wrong and now Lina's the only survivor and she's in prison. Two men plan to visit Lina in prison and get her to tell them where the treasure currently is. They are like agents of some kind. Anywho, Lina remains tight-lipped, which you can literally see when a scene begins and ends by zooming in on her crotch. It is at least a good quarter of the way through the movie when she finally appears naked, which for Franco practically makes it a Pixar flick. When we finally see it, good God.
She gets vaginally tortured in prison, has a lesbian affair (duh), tricks the lesbian (duh), tricks the warden and tricks the viewer into sitting through the whole thing by carrying it with her beautiful self. Oh ya got me good! It's one Eurosleaze nasty so well paced and soothing to the eyes it should be the pilot for a show on the real classics called Trashterpiece Theatre. Too bad, she would've made a perfect host too.
From the sound of things, Lina was a unique woman in the sleaze film world. Franco has sadly outlived his love, but it's not surprising because the only thing he won't outlive are the cockroaches. After seeing Franco accept his Goya Award in 2009, they appeared close until the very end. She was young enough to be his daughter, but it was still cute. Well, not cute but.... Wait wait back up, Jess Franco got an award at an award show? Yep. There was even a lengthy montage of his entertaining films complete with nuns in prison and badly dubbed laughter. Franco even got a standing ovation! Who knew stuffy award shows were filled with so many stinkin' perverts.
Uh oh! Here we go again! Cue erotic version of Benny Hill theme.


  1. So sad to hear about her passing. Saw her only in this flick.

  2. Yah me too, I think. It's at least the only one I remember her from and damn is she memorable.
