Movie of the Week: Satan in High Heels
With a title inspired by the pulp paperbacks of the day, Satan in High Heels (1962) is pure low-budget awesomeness from start to finish. Meg Myles plays Stacey, a bad girl who tries to go legit when she lands a job singing in a New York nightclub. She meets a nice guy and tries to be good, she really does, but it’s just not meant to be.
There’s even something of interest for the LGBT viewers watching! Grayson Hall (TV’s Dark Shadows) is fabulous as Pepe, the world-weary lesbian nightclub owner, and Del Tenny (director of classics like The Horror of Party Beach and The Living Corpse) plays the fastidious Paul, the clubs general manager and the only man immune to Stacey’s considerable charms. Check out this title if you get a chance. Below is the trailer as well as a clip of Myles performing the movies unofficial theme “Deadlier Than the Male”. Though she actually performs the vocals herself, lip-synching said vocals is not exactly her strong suit.
