The Bitch is a British film released in 1979. It is a sequel to The Stud (1978), and both films were based on novels by British author Jackie Collins. Like its predecessor, the film starred her sister, Joan Collins, as Fontaine Khaled.
Although both The Stud and The Bitch were generally panned by critics, they were nevertheless both commercial successes and helped to revive Joan Collins' career. In 1981, her performance in The Stud/The Bitch attracted the attention of Aaron Spelling and Esther and Richard Shapiro when they were looking for an actress to play the part of Alexis Carrington in their TV series Dynasty.
