That Madonna has said the narrative for the video "Bad Girl" was suggested by the book and film "Looking for Mr. Goodbar?"
The 1977 film, starring Diane Keaton as Theresa Dunn, traces the sexual awakening of a young teacher searching for excitement outside of her mundane existence. Originally in search of the "perfect man," whom she refers to as "Mr. Goodbar," she begins losing control of her life as her sexual appetite grows. Quiet and reserved teacher by day, sexual adventuress and bar-hopper by night, Dunn begins to dabble in drugs and unstable men. One such sexual partner, Tony, played by Richard Gere, turns jealous and possessive, and begins to threaten her life. Ultimately, she is raped and murdered.
