69 Love Games , often played under the title Angels of Sin , is a 1967 German exploitation film by August Rieger , who worked here under a pseudonym, with Erik Schumann in one of the leading roles.


Silvana Orth is an ambitious, young journalist who absolutely wants to get to know the background of prostitution . So she goes to the appropriate districts to consult the "angels of sin" and to shed light on their lives. Many of the whores live miserable lives. Once, believing that they would find true love, they fell into the hands of ruthless pimps who forced them into prostitution. Silvana risks a lot to make her report as authentic as possible. She puts on make-up like a whore and equips herself with her skimpy clothes and shoes in order not to attract any further attention among the ladies of the trade. So she dares to venture into the city's den of vice, but her acquaintance with the competitors and their quick-witted puffs brings her massive problems.

Because with her report, Silvana stumbles into a wasp's nest of slavery and crime. And with the gangsters led by the slippery Mecky Krüger, who exercise control over the women and like to have their husbands for the rough, known as "the blonde", hand-beating them, is not to be trifled with. The journalist barely escapes a murder. When her colleague Renate wants to get out of the car, she is killed in an assassination attempted as a car accident. Ingrid, not yet 18, is only saved by the love of a sincere young man named Christian, a simple but good-natured refinery worker. In Rosmann, Silvana finally gets her most important supporter.
