John Sayles on

Kitten with a Whip

Released 1964
Distributor Universal Pictures

Being photographed in black and white doesn’t deter Ann-Margret, even in monochrome the fiery redhead is a dazzling distraction. And when this kitten gets her claws in the blandly handsome politico played by John Forsythe, it’s a match made in pulp heaven. Director Douglas Heyes’s sexed-up JD film has a well-deserved reputation for being over the top but with Ann working overtime as a hot-to-trot pyromaniac, we wouldn’t have it any other way.
