Bad Girls, Bad Girls Whatcha Gonna Do?
17 April 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

After two films with Errol Flynn, the acting producing husband and wife team of Anna Neagle and Herbert Wilcox decided to try a film with a more modern theme. Not that musical comedy star Neagle was about to rock and roll, but she could play the mother of a daughter who was into that crazy new beat.

Teenage Bad Girl starts with Anna's daughter Sylvia Syms being a good girl. Syms is the oldest of two daughters to Neagle and she's pretty happy especially since she has a new man in her life, Norman Wooland. But Syms has met up with a new boy, a bad boy played by Kenneth Haigh who intrigues and excites her.

Pretty soon she's spending all her time with him to the exclusion of family, school, other friends and Syms has Neagle properly worried. It all ends in a senseless tragedy.

Teenage Bad Girl was no better or worse than some of the teen themed dramas that were starting to flood the market as the age of rock and roll dawned on this side of the pond. I'm sure it made some good money for the Wilcox/Neagle team although it certainly wasn't a typical Anna Neagle product. She and Wilcox would be leaving the big screen shortly and concentrating on British television.
