BAD GIRLS DO CRY (1965)
Cautionary tale mixed with sleazy sexploitation nudie-cutey. Star Misty Ayers was a stripper back in the 50's but she doesn't even get nude in this. We just get to see her in some old-timey underpants. Pretty depressing story where things just go consistently wrong for our dopey heroine. She starts out with a crappy job slinging hash and then gets an even worse job being kept as a slave prostitute. She meets a guy who seems like he's gonna help her out but things just keep getting worse. Not the most uplifting thing to watch on a Sunday morning with a hangover but they do try to give you a neat little wrap up and a strange ending which basically says we're all doomed until we wipe out all crime. The absurd comedy bits with a strange Redd Foxx looking gentleman don't work at all. Pretty bleak for such a silly movie. This thing was supposedly filmed sometime in the 50's and not released until 1965 and it certainly looks like it.
