And When She Was Bad, She Was Better
This flick is a compendium of bits that are individually pretty awful, but when they're assembled it's actually kind of fun. Clips from sixty years of movies (from the silents up into the mid-'80s when this was made) show sassy "bad" girls smoking cigarettes, rolling their stockings down and going for joyrides, and getting progressively 'badder' as time goes by and topless catfights begin to figure more prominently in the plots. Don't expect to see famous actresses in this one, as it seems to have been put together exclusively from cheapo exploitation flicks (yes, they had those back in the '20s too). Despite a majorly lame 'framing' story that apparently stars close female relatives and friends of the director, it's worth a watch, so long as you've got the guys over, a couple of six-packs, and chips or some similar snack that can be thrown harmlessly at the TV.
