Grasshopper
Grasshopper is an episodic coming-of-age story about a beautiful, innocent teenager (Jacqueline Bissett), who plans to travel from her native British Columbia to join her boyfriend in Los Angeles, but gets sidetracked by a nightclub comedian, who persuades her to move to Las Vegas. By the end of the film, her innocence has been shattered and she winds up as a bitter, burned-out call girl in Vegas. Later it was released on home video under the titles The Passing of Evil and Passions.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Bisset is on camera for almost the entire film, kept carefully within her dramatic depth by Director Jerry Paris, with unexpected outbreaks of a kooky humor."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"A well-done film, with a fine performance by Bisset."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A film of ordinary ambitions and of limited but sometimes stunning success."
‑ Roger Greenspun, New York Times
"A better than expected dark showgirl life lesson story, that still underwhelms even if it never turns as vulgar as it suggests it would."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
