|1995 VHS release of rediscovered outtakes from the film.|
Wood was always in a humble financial state, and often had to take out loans in order to make his films. Many of his films are exploitation genres in hopes of making a cheap buck. The film centers around a couple searching for their daughter and the discovery that she now resides in a harem. Many softcore sex scenes occur throughout the film, including incest.
No copies of the film have been released or made public since it's original theatrical run, even after Wood's films achieved their cult status. However, 3 reels of outtakes, behind the scenes footage, and deleted scenes were rediscovered in 1995 and have resurfaced on YouTube. The outtakes were gathered together and released on a 1995 VHS from Something Weird Video.
In 2014, a full 80-minute print of the film was publicly exhibited at the Anthology Film Archives in New York City. The film is no longer considered lost, but the film has still not been released to the public.
