Overview

This seedy anti-marijuana tract was distributed as She Shoulda Said No. The star is one Lila Leeds, who gained notoriety in 1948 when she and Robert Mitchum were arrested during a Hollywood pot party. Leeds plays an impressionable chorus girl who is hooked onto marijuana by her collegiate brother. Going from bad to worse, the girl becomes a dope pusher to support her reefer habit. Ultimately, she goes "cold turkey" and becomes a narc, working with the feds to smash the dope peddlers once and for all. Like most films of its ilk, Wild Weed is an unintentional laugh riot when seen today. The cast is a surprisingly good one, including Alan Baxter, Lyle Talbot, Michael Whalen and pianist Rudolf Friml Jr. Director "Sherman Scott" also travelled under the name of Sam Newfield.
