The Wasp Woman (aka The Bee Girl and Insect Woman) is an American science fiction film produced and directed by Roger Corman (who also plays a cameo as a doctor in the film) which was completed in 1959. The film was originally released as a double feature with Beast From Haunted Cave. To pad out the running time when the film was released to television two years later, a new prologue was added to the film by director Jack Hill. (Wikipedia)
