“A young bride, left alone to the lewd passions of an evil dwarf!”
And with that tagline, a “euro-sleaze” classic was born!
Sometimes there are movies that are so wrong – I mean WRONG – in every way that they are destined for cult status….with that in mind, time to explore the mysterious disappearance of the sex kitten star of this film:
Yes, there is a film called “The Sinful Dwarf”, and it is everything the title suggests! Not only that, it starred a beautiful young Actress who would never be hear from again!
Meet Anne Sparrow!
Actress Anne Sparrow stars in “The Sinful Dwarf”, but it’s her only film performance EVER, and she has disappeared into the black hole of movie trivia! Why? Well, let’s begin with this – a trailer that only hints at the decadence on display – and started with that classic horn-driven instrumental while a 70’s “coming attractions” graphic covers the screen:
Thanks to John Deadbeat for posting this on YouTube, go check him out for more wacky stuff!
Here’s the plot of “The Sinful Dwarf”:
Anne Sparrow stars as the young wife of a Doctor who needs to rent a room for a few nights in a strange city.
Diminutive former kiddie-show host Torben Bille – who looks disturbingly like Jack Black in a trash compactor – stars as well, as a young man who takes a special interest in the female guests at his mother’s boarding house…
Poor Anne Sparrow!
For Actress Anne Sparrow, it must have been a dream come true: landing a starring role in your first feature film! But who is kidding who – just look at this description from the cover art:
“The delicious Anne Sparrow – in her first and understandably only screen role – co-stars in this towering achievement in graphic depravity, now fully restored from a 35mm print discovered hidden in a janitor’s closet at the Danish Film Institute!”
I guess being part of a film described as a “towering achievement in graphic depravity” can make you second-guess your career choice!
And yes, that’s right – this movie was not only found in a janitor’s closet in Denmark – but they chose not to throw it out!
The “Missing” Sex Kitten!
As you all know, the internet holds the answers to our entire history….it can tell you anything and everything – except what happened to Sparrow!
I have scoured the internet and haven’t found anything about Anne Sparrow – except that “The Sinful Dwarf” was her first and only movie – perhaps it was due to the fact that the Producers took the film, added some “XXX” material in it, and released an even dirtier version!
The movie makes Anne Sparrow’s performance look even more graphic than it was, but whatever the reason, Anne Sparrow’s singular movie achievement remains this – one of the craziest examples of “Euro-Sleaze” ever released!
Oh, and here is another one:
Yes, some very big stars subjected themselves to this classic slice of sleaze – including Raquel Welch as a Nun!
If you aren’t familiar with “Euro-Sleaze”, here is a story I posted about this outrageously offensive and entertaining genre of film from the 70’s!
Anne Sparrow isn’t he only Actress to make a single film appearance – although in this case, an Actress achieved film immortality for a single scene!
Yes, Gilda Texter will forever be remembered as the “naked motorcycle rider” in the 70’s cult classic “Vanishing Point” – read her entire story here:
