The movie is a pretty faithfull adaptation (Willeford even has a small role). I liked it very much. It's also supposed to be the only movie Roger Corman (who produced it) ever lost money on.

The other two film adaptations of Willeford books, Woman Chaser (which has been mentioned) and Miami Blues, are also recommended.
