  • The Prehistoric Era – The cavewoman Brit is unable to attract a visiting trader until the wall painter Rak has the idea of making up her face.
  • Roman Nights – In ancient Rome, the Emperor Flavius makes an excuse to leave the Empress Domitilla and go with the poet Menippus to a brothel. There he meets a mysterious and beautiful woman who proves to be his wife.
  • Mademoiselle Mimi – During the French Revolution, Philibert asks to visit Mimi and from her window watches an old aristocrat being guillotined, saying it was his childless uncle. Promising to pay her as soon as the lawyers have settled the estate, he disappears.
  • The Gay Nineties – In Paris in the 1890s, Nini goes to bed with a lonely old man and, looking through his wallet once he is asleep, finds he is a partner in a major bank. Refusing to take any money, she says she is in love with him and in the end lets him marry her.
  • Paris Today – Catherine, who has lost her driving licence, works from a car driven by her friend Nadia. When the car is impounded, they buy an ambulance instead. One night it is stopped by police, who depart when they discover that the client is a doctor.
  • Anticipation – In the future, a man from a remote space outpost visits Earth and at the spaceport hotel is offered a prostitute for the night. He rejects the girl, Marlène, as she is incapable of conversation. His hosts then find him another girl, Eléonore, who is full of charm and chat, but reluctant to go further. He persuades her that the mouth she uses so well could have further uses.

Raquel Welch was the only American in the cast.[3]


The rights to distribute the film in the US and English-speaking Canada were purchased by Jack Harris.[4] Harris later wrote in his memoirs he was attracted by the chance to work on "a brand new film, produced like a major Hollywood picture, featuring Raquel Welch and some of the hottest female stars in the world... It was a big disappointment as a theatrical entry. However through the years, between theatres, television and home video, it has never lost is popularity and has treated me very well."[5]

The Los Angeles Times thought the film was "ruined by some of the worst dubbing in recent memory".[6]
