Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Playboy novelist Michael Shawn's (Warren William) chickens come home to roost in Such Women are Dangerous. Accused of murder, Shawn desperately searches for character witnesses to help him out in court. Alas, all of his former lovers are in a vindictive mood, and all hope to see Shawn fry for what he's done to them. By the time he's been raked over the coals by ambitious DA Stanley (Irving Pichel), Shawn himself believes that he's guilty! The film is ostensibly an object lesson in how a guiltless man can be condemned by a combination of circumstantial evidence and lack of character, but it's doubtful that this theory would hold water in the light of some of the more spectacular real-life murder cases of the 1990s. Such Women are Dangerous is adapted from Odd Thursday, a novel by Vera Caspary.
