Wicked Woman is a 1953 American low-budget film noir film starring Beverly Michaels. The film co-starred Richard Egan, Percy Helton, and Evelyn Scott, was directed by Russell Rouse, and written by Rouse and Clarence Greene.[1][2]


A blonde floozy (Beverly Michaels) drifts into town and gets a job as a waitress at a local bar. She sets her sights on the bar's handsome owner, who is married to an alcoholic. Her plans are for the two of them to take the bar's money and skip to Mexico but a boarder at the rooming house where she is staying discovers her plans, and comes up with a plan of his own.



The New York Times called it a "misguided little melodrama" that "manages to squander some persuasively realistic upholstery".[3]
