An Original Vintage Theatrical Half-Sheet Movie Poster (Learn More)

Bait, the 1954 Hugo Haas Satanic sexploitation bad girl melodrama ("...the door's open... Come on in!"; "Men go for her..."; "She's the 'Bait' in a man-trap!"; "Kisses like these cost plenty!"; "It's a man-trap and she's the 'Bait'"; "Story and Screenplay by Samuel W. Taylor") starring Cleo Moore, Hugo Haas (director, producer, and star!), John Agar, Emmett Lynn, and Bruno VeSota. Note that star/director Hugo Haas was a native of Czechoslovakia, and in 1937, he wrote the screenplay for a movie, "Skeleton on Horseback", based on a play by Karel Capek (best remembered as the author of "R.U.R.", the first literary mention of robots), and that movie was obviously intended as an allegory against Hitler and fascism. When Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia right after the movie was made, Haas fled to the United States, but he never achieved major prominence in movies, although he is well remembered for directing a series of movies about an old man in love with a young beautiful woman (starring Haas himself, with a series of "bad girls", including Cleo Moore)!
