of men exploring an old mine get trapped inside after a cave-in. After
weeks of no food, they decide to draw straws with the short-stick loser
offering his arm for lunch. Obviously, the 'winner' is unhappy
but allows the dissection to happen. In a moment of twisted fate, no sooner
than his arm is removed the group is rescued. Fearing for their reputations
and possible repercussions, everyone [except the raving victim] agrees
to lie, concocting a story of how they saved his life when he was pinned
under rubble. The one-armed victim vows revenge. Then years later, the
man who originally suggested the drawing straws idea received a severed
arm gift-wrapped in the mail...
Walley tried to change her image with this film. She had been typecast
after becoming Gidget in 1961, followed by numerous Beach Party
films (Beach Blanket Bingo, Ghost in the Invisible Bikini,
It's a Bikini World, et al), and had hoped this movie would introduce
her to an older audience. The result was mixed and she would return to
family-fare the following year in Benji. Miss Walley died from
Esophageal Cancer in May 2001 at age 59.
