The first Hollywood film to openly feature lesbianism, this film was considered very risque on its release in 1962. Barbara Stanwyck plays Jo Courtney, the indomitable madame of The Doll House, a 1930s New Orleans bordello where the main attraction of the brothel - both for the clients and for Jo - is the bored and beautiful Hallie (Capucine). When Hallie's ex-lover, Dove Linkhorn (Laurence Harvey), comes to town in search of her, Jo acts swiftly and brutally to ensure that Hallie is kept within her grasp.
