Satan in High Heels (1962)

Director: Jerald Intrator

Starring: Meg Myles, Grayson Hall, Del Tenney, Sabrina

More info: IMDb

Tagline: They all went where the heat was hottest!

Plot: Meg Myles stars as Stacey Kane, a voluptuous burlesque dancer who robs her drug-addicted husband (Earl Hammond), then skips town and heads for the Big Apple, where she finds work at a high-end strip club. The club's wealthy owner (Mike Keene) falls for Stacey, lavishing her with gifts and promising to make her a singer; the cold-hearted seductress returns the favor by sleeping with his son (Robert Yuro).

My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again? Yeah.

Man, this broad is an A-class bitch from start to finish. She chews people up (mostly men) and spits them out with pleasure. She's one of these tough broads that doesn't take shit from nobody and tells you how it's going to be. You're gonna take it and like it. Now I thought this was going to be a real sleazy exploitation joint judging by the time it was made, the synopsis and the title. It's not really.

That's as much nudity as you get. It's too bad, too, because a smattering of it here and there would make this so much better. It's not a bad picture. The performances are fun and I liked how it looked much better than its low budget restraints probably allowed it. The story is fine and music and dialogue are fun. The title is dead on for what the picture delivers. Maybe I was hoping for more going in.

At least the DVD is put out by Something Weird Video which means it's got a shitload of extras. There's another feature film called, THE WILD AND THE NAKED (1962). There's also some sexploitation shorts and trailers which are the real fun on the disc.
