WILD WEED
1949, 70 min, USA, Dir: Sam Newfield

Also released as SHE SHOULDA SAID NO, this exploitation quickie capitalizes on the notoriety of Lila Leeds, who’d been busted for marijuana possession with Robert Mitchum a year earlier. She stars as Anne Lester, a nightclub dancer introduced to the devil’s weed by a local drug dealer (Alan Baxter); after her life goes to pot, Anne agrees to help the local police captain (Lyle Talbot) shut him down.
