An atmospheric, period movie set in the early 1930’s, The Bite aka The Big Con is a colorful parody of mainstream movie The Sting, which combines sex, comedy and plenty of monkey business.
The Bite is not as it seems. Originally released in theatres as The Big Con in 1974, the film resurfaced a year later, re-titled The Bite, as a means to cash in on the success of The Sting. Although the two films share similar plot elements, The Bite takes a far more lyrical and comedic touch to the subject matter. It also contains plenty of explicit, hardcore sex action!
The plot of The Bite involves a few 1930’s crooks who decide to con a local banker into buying a brothel. The cast, among them Jennifer Jordan, Sara Nicholson, Alan Marlo, Robert Everett, and future disco star Andrea True (billed as Ida King) all provide fine acting performances. The direction, by nudie filmmaker Jerry Denby, is strong and the film as a whole has much higher production values than most other sexploitation films at the time.
The Bite as a whole feels like a well made nudie film, with explicit sex action as an added bonus. The set and costume designs as well as the musical scoring are both in keeping with 1930’s atmosphere, and the well written script offers more than a few clever one liners and plot twists to keep the audience interested. Jerry Denby tries hard to make the most out of this production and he has succeeded.
Cinematically, The Bite looks just as good as lower budget Hollywood films made at the same time and the talented cast and high production values help a great deal. The film works very well as both a 1930’s period piece and a 1970’s time capsule of a quality east coast hardcore porn film. The one problem is that the plot sometimes gets slightly overrun by the sex scenes, but as a whole, the sexual content is relevant and the plot is allowed to fully develop.
