Here is more information about "The Perils of Gwendoline", from
/The Comics Journal/, Number 95 (February, 1985):
It cost $5 million and opened in Paris in February (1984), the
writer/director is Just Jaeckin, and it is described as "an adventure
tale that sends Gwen (California actress Tawny Kitaen) from her Paris
convent to the Far East, escaping with friends Willard (Kansas-born
Brent Huff) and Beth (Zazou) from cannibals, sand-storms, and a
villainous Amazon (Bernadette Lafont)." The article didn't mention a US
release. They also mention that the bondage in the original strip is
not present in the film.
