Editorial Reviews

The Hollywood night life demands a high price from Michele (Death Race 2000's Leslie McRae), an aspiring dancer who ditches her backwoods job as a waitress to make it big in the land of movie stars and broken dreams. She hits L.A. with her chic gold boots, determined to shimmy her heart out for the demanding crowd at the Go-Go Revue. There, Michele is torn between two men as she confronts the dirty side of fame, a dangerous life filled with crime, greed, lust, and deception! Before Showgirls and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, this unflinching portrait of Tinsel Town rips away the glittery veneer of fame and fortune!

3.0 out of 5 stars Girl in Gold Boots(1967) April 1, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Girl in Gold Boots(1967) is so bad, it's good. I first saw the film on Mystery Science Theater 3000 during the late 1990's Sci-Fi Channel era. The sweet, sexy Leslie McRay plays a waitress who wants to be a famous Go Go Dancer in Los Angeles! Jody Daniels and "Regis Philbin doppelganger" Tom Pace co-star. Girl in Gold Boots is a counterculture film that chickens out and becomes right winged during the climax! There's hammy attempts at melodrama! A female dancer high on drugs wishes she "had her pretty mind back". Director Ted V. Mikels churned out a lot of low budget grindhouse movies. He seems like a nice guy. There's an interview with him on the English TV show The Incredibly Strange Film Show. Mikels also gave us the silly "nudie cutie" Dr. Sex(1964)! Girl in Gold Boots delivers 1960's rock and roll and plenty of sexy, female Go Go Dancers. In the MST3K version, Mike Nelson claims the dancers' silver bikinis look like "oven bags"! The film also has "guest stars" from 1960's pop culture. The guy who played the Sheik in Head(1968) played a nightclub bouncer in this film. Girl in Gold Boots is a "classic bad movie" and a 1960's time capsule.

3.0 out of 5 stars Which Of These Two Is Worse At Their Craft? March 12, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of Ted V. Mikels most ridiculous films ever (and that's saying something.) The film was one of the last satirized on MST3K, and I am grateful they took it on, though realize this is the original version. An interesting side note is observing what footage MST3K trimmed to make it fit their time requirements.

The plot concerns a girl, Michele Casey, with dreams of being a dancer who works in a roadside cafe with her abusive father, and who crosses paths with two men, the execrably adorable Finley Jones, who goes by the moniker "Critter," and Buz Nichols, a small time hood who is clearly not good for Michele to be around.

Eventually they all wind up in Los Angeles at a ridiculous go-go joint complete with wretched band and fire breathing dragon motif, where Michele (of course) becomes the lead dancer because of her huge talent. Also in the talent department, Critter is an amateur singer-songwriter who pleasures us with a few tunes, leading to the question: who is worse at their chosen art form, Michele or Critter? I vote for Michele, but it's a close race. Along the way there are subplots about desertion from the Army, go-cart racing, and the obligatory brawl between Critter and Buz. One guess as to who ends up with Michele.

There are many holes in the plot, and even more continuity gaffes, but this is not a film for serious contemplation at any rate. The film is more enjoyable with the MST3K treatment, but it is still a gem for bad movie buffs in its original state.

Don't miss the commentary by Ted V. Mikels. I am fairly sure that most viewers will find reason to disagree with him on certain points. One thing is for sure, though: as I write this "Girl in Gold Boots" is number 81 on the Internet Movie Database list of the 100 worst films of all time. There is a reason for that, and it is a very compelling one. See for yourself.

The only good thing about this movie was the MST 3K episode that followed. The "professional" dancing was a joke, the plot was pointless, and the song that plays in the background of nearly every scene will be stuck in your head for weeks.
