Wanda (1970) DVD9
Deadbeat mom Wanda (Barbara Loden) cannot raise the will to take care of her children or her house in the coal fields, and allows a judge to grant her husband (Jerome Thier) a divorce and full custody. Wanda drifts on the road, sleeping with any man that picks her up or buys her a meal. Her purse robbed in an all-night movie theater, she meets thief Mr. Dennis (Michael Higgins) in a bar but is too distracted to notice that he's robbing the place. Wanda accompanies the perpetually angry and abusive Mr. Dennis as he drinks himself to sleep and pulls off small robberies and car thefts. After visiting his aged father, and finally expressing some bona fide human emotions, Mr. Dennis prepares Wanda to help him with a complicated kidnap-bank robbery scheme. After a feeble resistance Wanda is takes her place as Mr. Dennis' accomplice.
