Lust To Kill, A (DVD-R)
Rattlesnakes fight on the scorching sand as a blood-soaked revenge drama smolders in the desert heat. Brute gunslinger Cheney Holland (Don Megowan) seeks retribution for his brother's execution by lawmen. Opposed by cunning nemesis Marshal Matt Gordon (Jim Davis) and aided by his lover Sherry (Allison Hayes), Holland will stop at nothing in his bid to settle the score.
Violent, sexually provocative and lurid, A Lust To Kill is a pulpy 50s Western electrified by a tantalizing performance by Allison Hayes.
Hayes was born Mary Jane Hayes in 1930 and came to national recognition when she won the 1949 Miss Washington DC beauty pageant. A tall, curvacious sex symbol often swathed by costumers in tight sweaters or barely-there leopard-skin loincloths, Hayes is today best remembered as one of the premier "scream queens" of the 1950s and 60s. While Hayes' favorite screen role was opposite Van Heflin and Joanne Woodward in Count Three and Pray (1955) she is also fondly remembered for appearances in Roger Corman's Gunslinger (1956), The Unearthly (1957), The Undead (1957), and The Hypnotic Eye (1960). Hayes' final big screen appearance was opposite Elvis Presley in Tickle Me (1965). Her portrayal of the title role of 1958's Attack of the 50-Foot Woman insures her an indelible place in cinema history.
