PLAYGIRL
1954, Universal, 85 min, Dir: Joseph Pevney

A New York chanteuse (Shelley Winters) tries to wise up her corn-fed friend (Coleen Miller) to the realities of city life but matters quickly spiral out of control. Shelley’s neighbor (Gregg Palmer) works for a scandal rag and her playboy friend (Richard Long) is little more than a pimp. Meanwhile, Winters warbles on the bandstand between trysts with her married boyfriend (Barry Sullivan). This lurid Joe Pevney-helmed melodrama has been vaulted for over half a century. Don’t miss its coming-out party!
