YMMV: The Leech Woman
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: "Old women are evil!"
    • Alternatively, "Bitter old drunks willing to commit murder to keep their looks are evil".
    • "What woman lives, who has passed the prime of her life, that would not give her remaining years to reclaim even a few moments of joy and happiness and to know the worship of men?". In other words, it's impossible for an older woman to be happy. Better to be young and sexy for a few hours, because life sucks as soon as no one wants to bang you.
  • Values Dissonance: This movie is a great step sideways in racial sensitivity.
    • The Africans in this film are not idiots, but actually cunning, and are actually the most likeable characters in the film. Keep in mind this film was released in The Fifties.
