Five Minutes to Love (originally known as The Rotten Apple and It Only Takes Five Minutes) is a 1963 American drama film directed by John Hayes and starring Rue McClanahan as Poochie, a woman who lives in a junkyard. The film was critically lambasted, and later picked up by exploitation filmmaker Kroger Babb.
The film was released in 2006 as a double feature with Walk the Angry Beach under its exploitation title Hollywood After Dark, focusing on McClanahan's roles, as she later gained fame for her work on The Golden Girls.
