Chesty Morgan in Deadly Weapons (1973) - Doris Wishman
Yes, Virginia, there is a Doris Wishman, and she really did carve a career out of blunt, bizarre, and bewilderingly bad sexploitation films. Deadly Weapons is one of her most notorious, a revenge tale starring the impossibly endowed Polish-born stripper Chesty Morgan (identified in the credits simply as Zsa Zsa), whose claim to fame is a 73-inch bust that she displays, strokes, and fondles in practically every scene. The nominal plot involves a mob blackmail scheme and a double-crossing gangster who just happens to be Chesty's boyfriend. When the syndicate kills him, she goes undercover to take her revenge on his murderers in a most unique way: She smothers them with her grotesque bosom. There's nothing erotic about this crazy freak show, but it is jaw-droppingly weird. Chesty is no actress--she shuffles, zombielike, through the picture while numbly gazing down as if looking for her mark--and her voice is supplied by a breathy American. As far as that goes, Wishman isn't much of a director. The picture is highlighted by flat performances, clumsy editing, wildly fluctuating color, and a tendency to cut away from dialogue scenes (she often lands on Chesty's mammoth mammaries) to hide the fact that all of the voices are dubbed in later. There's little of the spirit that makes Ed Wood's klutzy little pictures so much fun, but there is something strange and unique about this outrageous, unreal, and otherwise numbingly inept picture. It proved successful enough for Wishman and Morgan to team up for a pseudo-sequel, Double Agent 73. --Sean Axmaker for amazon.com
Chesty Morgan (born Ilana Wilczkowsky in 1928 in Poland) is best known for her extremely large breasts and her appearances in the exploitation films of director Doris Wishman. Celebrity Sleuth magazine estimated her measurements as 73FF-32-36. She is considered one of the original stereotypes for the breed of extremely large-breasted models and porn stars that began to emerge in the 1980s.
An orphan, she was sent to live on a kibbutz in Israel at the age of eleven.
In 1974 she married National League baseball umpire Dick Stello (1931-1987). He died in a freak accident when he was standing between two cars while talking to someone and another vehicle crashed into one of the vehicles, crushing him. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chesty_Morgan [Aug 2005]
