Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This breezy compilation highlights the great villainesses, trollops and femme fatales of the American cinema. Special attention is given the film noir genre, as typified by Gloria Grahame, Lizabeth Scott, and Jane Greer. There are also generous dollops from the "women's prison" flicks of the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. The vignettes from more recent films are decidedly steamy, so you might want to preview this film before letting the kids watch. David Carradine, Gene Autry, and Yvonne DeCarlo appear in bridging sequences, offering their reminiscences of the good old days of the bad old gals.
