Interesting movie but not as interesting as to WHEN it was run
17 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

This was a fun movie to watch. A good role for 21 year old Donna Reed in a movie sandwiched between her roles in an Andy Hardy and a Dr Kildare film. A very good view of how the "system" handled juvenile delinquency in those times. I didn't know the movie existed till I was channel surfing on Wed 3/16/05 and came across it. The movie played on TCM from 3:30 to 5:00 CST. At the same time on Court TV there was the live broadcast of the verdict in Robert Blakes trial for the murder of his wife. The verdict being read at 4:30 CST. Coincidence?? Maybe, but I doubt it. Sure was fun scooting back and forth between the Channels though.

Take care.
