Even those film buffs who derive pleasure from the output of poverty-row PRC Pictures are hard put to say anything nice about Swamp Woman. Famed striptease artist Ann Corio, a much better actress than many have claimed, stars as Annabelle, a cabaret dancer who returns to the Florida bayous whence she came. Here she finds that her ex-sweetheart Pete (Jack LaRue) is engaged to marry her niece Lizbet (Mary Hull). When escaped convict Jeff (Richard Deane) stumbles onto the scene, Annabelle teams up with Pete to prove Jeff's innocence. Figuring prominently in the proceedings is Annabelle's sleazy agent Brand (Jay Novello) who all but wears a sign on his forehead proclaiming I'M THE VILLAIN! Poorly written, photographer and directed, Swamp Woman is emblematic of all that was wrong with the worst of PRC; the only person to emerge from this fiasco without embarrassment is Ann Corio, who on the strength of her performance herein was signed up for future film appearances.
