3.0 out of 5 stars Classic Of Its Time. March 14, 2006
Difficult to know what to rate this film. Next to bonafide classics such as "Casablanca", it would score one star but as a camp classic it would score five stars like "Valley Of The Dolls". The film captures the the hedonistic lifestyle of silly, privileged, amoral Londoners in the 1970s and their interaction via a nightclub called "Hobo" owned by the Joan Collins character (at her glamorous peek) and her husband. The characters could be given more dimension as they are quite two dimensional. The disco soundtrack is more than adequate and the erotic sequences are quite acceptable. Film vacillates between being corny, flashy, cheeky and humorous. Worth checking out as a document of its time, the film is entertaining and enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Trashterpiece! January 4, 2009
This 1978 gem revived Joan Collins' career when she needed it most. Made for $600,000 the film grossed over $20,000,000 worldwide, landing Collins on the front pages of newspapers across the globe. It is an epic trashterpiece, a guilty pleasure that is so bad it's fabulous.

Collins headlines the picture as Fontaine Khaled, the bored and sexually voracious wife of an Arab millionaire, who spends her nights cavorting at her London nightclub, Hobo. There she employs 'The Stud', Tony Blake, played by the dashing Oliver Tobias, who services Fontaine's every whim both on and off the dance floor.

The screenplay, written by Jackie Collins from her own source novel published a decade earlier, moves at a brisk pace. Sets, lighting, costumes and music are all pitch perfect, acting as a time capsule for late 1970's London. Collins' performance as the oversexed socialite is tart and entertaining as Collins reaches her cinematic zenith as film's bitch supreme. Collins is at her best when Fontaine is at her worst. Tobias gives a good performance as the anti-hero in this film, never quite garnering the audience's sympathy. The supporting performances are also fine, 'The Stud' is a well cast film of mostly British movie veterans. Produced by Ron Kass and Oscar Lerman, the respective husbands of Joan and Jackie, it's evident that this film is a family affair.

Overall, the film is naughty fun. A bit of psychedelic nudity, some truly hilarious dialog and a story with the depth of a wading pool that is totally unapologetic. Highly recommended for any fan of either Collins sister and for those interested in a bit of unpretentious fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars "When Joan Collins Became A Star" December 7, 2010
It took Joan Collins years before she could finally say she had a hit movie. After having a contract with FOX studio and starring in nearly twenty films, most, if not all, were bombs, Joan starred in this independent feature entitled "The Stud" written by her sister Jackie Collins and based on her novel of the same name.

By 1977 the disco fad had arrived and sex was everywhere on the big screen. After a series of dismal failures as a movie actress appearing in low-budget films like "Empire of the Ants" and doing episodic TV Joan campaigned to get "The Stud" financed and produced.

The movie is now regarded as a camp classic today, but in all fairness the script is actually quite weak, but Joan is fabulous in the role as a woman running a disco in beautiful London during the late seventies while keeping a gigalo who falls for her step daughter. The sex scenes are pretty risque for its time as Joan had no trouble baring all for the camera.

A fun film, "The Stud" was followed the next year by the even more lurid title "The Bitch" also starring Miss Collins. That movie was also a commercial success and was a sequel to the former.

The DVD of "The Stud" is, unfortunately in full screen format and doesn't come with any features. It would have been nice if Joan had performed the audio commentary, but alas this was not the case. Hold out for a widescreen version that I hope is not too long in the distant future.

Verified Purchase
The Stud (1978), which was followed a year later by the film The B*tch (1979), both feature Joan Collins (Empire of the Ants, "Dynasty") and were both based off books written by Joan's sister, famed trash/sleaze novelist Jackie Collins, who was once quoted as saying "I live my life like a cool bachelor. I have a man for all seasons"...that's super. Directed by Quentin Masters (A Dangerous Summer), the film features Oliver Tobias (King Arthur, the Young Warlord). Also appearing is Sue Lloyd (The Ipcress File), Emma Jacobs (Lifeforce), Mark Burns (House of the Living Dead), Doug Fisher (Man About the House), and Walter Gotell (The Guns of Navarone, The Boys from Brazil), probably best for his reoccurring role as Russian General Anatol Gogol in such James Bond features as The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Moonraker (1979), and For Your Eyes Only (1981).

Oliver Tobias plays Tony Blake, a one-time waiter now manager of London's hottest nightclub The Hobo. As the film begins we find ourselves in Tony's apartment, looking at a wall festooned with signed portrait photographs of women, all of whom Tony's had relations with in the past (apparently, along with being a nightclub manager, Tony's also a full time gigolo). After a long, slow pan, just so we get an idea of just how many women Tony's been with, we see Tony in bed with another woman, one he apparently picked up at the club and whose name he doesn't know...oh that Tony...anyway, later that evening Tony arrives at the club only to get a phone call from the club's owner, Fontaine Khaled (Collins), the wife of a rich industrialist Ben Khaled (Gotell). Apparently the old man financed the club in an effort to give his wife something to do while he's off on business, which is quite frequently.
