'''''Kitten with a Whip''''' is a 1965 exploitation film starring Ann-Margret and John Forsythe.

Forsythe plays David Stratton, a candidate running for the U.S. Senate who finds that Jody, an escaped juvenile delinquent (Ann-Margret) broke into his house while he was away. A combination of crocodile tears followed by extortion ends up with him trying to keep Jody both in his house and away from the press, the police and his family. Things get worse when Jody's gang of friends shows up, and before he knows it he's held hostage taking a wounded man to Tijuana for off-the-record medical treatment. Where do Jody's sympathies really lie? And how is David going to keep all of this from ruining his campaign?

!!''Kitten with a Whip'' contains the following tropes:
* ArtisticLicenseMedicine: Buck rapidly nearly bleeds to death from a straight razor cut in his upper triceps.
* CarChase: The climax of the film, ending with [[RocksFallEverybodyDies "Rocks Fall, *Almost* Everybody Dies."]]
* {{Delinquents}}: Jody and her "friends."
* DeusExMachina: The Senate candidate is exonerated from even the risk of suspicion at the last moment, when Jody "explains" that he was an innocent in the ending car crash with her dying breath.
* DullSurprise: Stratton's facial expressions and vocal tone rarely change from "vaguely irritated."
* ExtremeDoormat: The movie ends in a half-dozen places if Stratton grows a spine.
** Also, Midge. Almost every line out of her mouth is either submissive to Buck or telling Jody how great she is.
* TheFarmerAndTheViper: Zig-zagged, but ultimately averted.
* HonorBeforeReason: Stratton refusing to tell Ron and Buck where Jody was hiding, putting himself (deeper) in harm's way, despite what Jody had done to all three of them.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Jody (with a triple-helping of "manic")
* MultipleChoicePast: Even Jody doesn't seem to know which parts of her past were real and which ones she made up.
* MoodSwinger: Jody, sometimes mid-sentence.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: An earnest desire to help a troubled youth lands Stratton in all sorts of trouble.
* PsychoticLover: Jody.
* {{Sexophone}}: Played throughout the movie.
* SoundtrackDissonance: The PlayedForDrama scene of Jody returning to David's house even after he sent her away is hard to take seriously when the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "WesternAnimation/CannedFeud" is playing (loudly) in the background on a TV.
--> '''Mike''': Carl Stalling's in his house!
* VillainProtagonist: "Troubled" bad girl Jody.
