Movie Info

An aspiring senator finds himself in deep trouble when he tangles with a sultry teenage girl gone bad in this campy drama. Ann-Margret stars as Jody, a tough customer who escapes from reform school by stabbing a matron and attempting to burn down the building and then takes refuge in a house owned by ambitious politician David Patton (John Forsythe). Despite the hellcat's ample charms, the would-be officeholder wants nothing to do with her and tries to drive her away. She responds by practically

The laughs keep coming, and the biggest one is always when existentialist Grant (Richard Anderson) barks to Troy Donahue-like Ron (Peter Brown), "Now cool it, you creep, and co-exist!"

A ridiculous piece of sixties hokum, but at least we get to look at Margret...

The film bristles with dramatic and prurient possibilities, only about ten percent of which are realized.

The path of the story is clear -- Forsyte is in over his head with this wildcat and the two of them are going to keep battling it out until one of them wins

Audience Reviews for Kitten with a Whip

Not a good movie by any means, but I enjoyed it. Ann-Margaret acts so over the top as the young manipulative JD, I couldn't help but love her. Forsythe was wonderful too, although I kept imagining he was his character from Bachelor Father, which just made it more interesting for me. The story is well constructed too, but the ending isn't all that believable. So, enjoy it for what the description calls 'camp' value.

There sure is no shortage of '60s films about a straight, middle-aged guy having his life turned upside down by a chance encounter with a hot, young "swinger." Um, this is another one. The young Ann-Margret is always good for a testosterone rush but, typically, the dialogue is full of dated jargon. Wish I had taken notes on the worst lines. "Hey, big daddy...all the cats are making the scene! Ain't this just the living end?" That sort of gibberish.

"Kitten with a Whip" (if only the film were as good as its title) didn't seem to do the careers of Ann-Margret and John Forsythe any harm, so enjoy this campy trash with a clear conscience.
