    Beverly Michaels made essentially the same film with Richard Egan called Wicked Woman. Did she ever make a film where she wasn’t a” scheming tramp ” ? I still remember the title song of Wicked Woman sung by Herb Jeffries which perfectly captures the low rent appeal of Beverly Michaels in that pup fiction classic.
