WICKED WOMAN
1953, Park Circus/MGM, 77 min, USA, Dir: Russell Rouse

In this racy little B-movie, scarlet woman Beverly Michaels (PICKUP) cons saloon owner Richard Egan into bilking his boozy wife out of her dough, then toys with the affections of slavering devotee Percy Helton (as you’ve never seen him before). She plans on dumping both and leaving a dust trail to Mexico. Michaels was definitely director Rouse’s kind of woman: They married after making this picture - an extra twist to this juicy noir. Featuring a title song that’s a cult favorite!


THE OTHER WOMAN
1954, 20th Century Fox, 81 min, USA, Dir: Hugo Haas

When megalomaniacal film director Walter Darman (Hugo Haas) fires no-talent actress Sherry Stewart (Cleo Moore) from his latest artistic opus, the shamed sexpot schemes revenge. She drugs Darman, convinces him they’ve shared a night of scandalous debauchery and begins the blackmail. But this is a director with experience at rewriting other people’s scripts… NOT ON DVD!
