Bad girl movies film genre

Bad girl movies are films in which the main or another important female character is a provocative, scheming, often sexy or beautiful, but compelling even when not, woman, almost always on the wrong side of the spirit and usually the letter of the law. Some are quite young, others not. Manipulative, seductive, murderous, vengeful, troubled, hedonistic, depraved, or any combination thereof, they were occasionally misunderstood, softened or redeemed, but sometimes only at death's door. Some very early and much later exemplars got away with their crimes, but most paid, one way or another, as the censors required. The film posters of such films usually featured sexy artwork of the actress, posed seductively. Currently, these images in original posters and reproductions are as valued as are the films themselves.
