Goofs: Continuity: When Joe parks Jerome's Jaguar (after Jerome failing to do so), the shot from the outside shows that the car is parked between two other cars, one in front and one behind theirs. When however, the shot changes to the back seat towards the front, we see that there is no car in front, just empty road.

Plot: A self-diagnosed nymphomaniac recounts her erotic experiences to the man who saved her after a beating. Full summary »  »

Story: A man named Seligman finds a fainted wounded woman in an alley and he brings her home. She tells him that her name is Joe and that she is nymphomaniac.
