Some thirty years ago, the artist Peggy Ahwesh began to cultivate a fascination with the films of Doris Wishman, the prolific director behind grindhouse gems like Nude on the Moon (1961), Bad Girls Go to Hell (1965), and Let Me Die a Woman (1977), among many others. Ahwesh flew down from New York with fellow filmmaker M.M. Serra in 1994 to surprise Wishman at the Pink Pussycat Boutique in Coconut Grove, Miami. The fruits of this encounter would go into the making of The Films of Doris Wishman, a one-issue zine produced by Ahwesh in 1995. In conjunction with the reissue of Peggy Ahwesh's zine—now available in an expanded edition from Inpatient Press and Light Industry—Lightbox presents a double bill featuring Bad Girls Go to Hell alongside Ahwesh's The Color of Love, which she dedicated to Wishman.
