Crimes of Passion 1984
Urban call girl China Blue is skilled at turning tricks and a phrase, often at the same time, with her satin outfits and platinum wig earning her a steady stream of middle-aged male clients. Her flashy persona soon grabs the attention of two very different men: the Reverend Peter Shayne (Perkins), a poppers-sniffing street preacher who enjoys peep shows and violent sexual fantasies, and Bobby Grady (Laughlin), a security expert hired by a company boss to shadow one of his employees, Joanna Crane (Turner), whom he suspects is betraying him to the competition. Bobby discovers that Joanna and China Blue are one and the same, and he soon becomes entangled in her world of sexual extremes and manipulation. The relationship soon takes its toll on Bobby’s marriage to Amy (Designing Women’s Potts), who has a far lower sex drive than her husband, and Joanna/China Blue is forced to deal with numerous personal demons and a deeply psychotic Shayne who has his own twisted plans in mind.
