Sisters Jane and Penny are arrested for hitchhiking on their way to Los Angeles when they stop for a quick skinny dip in a rural town. Local agricultural magnate Trump is a sponsor for a local prison work program and the women get put in the fields to work off their sentence. Trump is dating the widowed judge in order to ensure a stable supply of cheap labor in order to undercut his competition. The prisoners suffer ill treatment, but the judge's son has signed on as a hired hand and begins to figure out the scam as he begins falling in love with Jane, and Penny dreams of making it big in showbiz.

"Intermissions over, back to your African Antics"
21 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Quite a package, that Mamie, she never disappointed her Male Fans and showed as much curvaceous charm as the Censors would allow, and always chose shiny material to accentuate the positive. She was more of a performer than an Actress or Singer/Dancer but she always gave it her all.

What emerged in most of her Movies was a proud B-Movie Star with no pretensions other than to Entertain. And that she did. It was hard to take your eyes off Her when she was on screen. She had that in common with the two other M's of the era, Monroe and Mansfield.

This Movie has a lot in it that defies explanation. In this Teen Rocker we have, for your consideration, Corrupt Judges, on the take Law Enforcement, Work-Farm Slavery of Youth, out of Wedlock Pregnancy, Migrant Immigrant Exploitation, and a Calypso Finale.

There are a lot of underwear shots, bumping and grinding, and that debaser of Youth, Rock n' Roll, that drove the League of Decency to put this one on a list. So overall, this is quite a slice of late 1950's Teen Life, at least what was being shown at the Drive-In, and is an underrated fun time with the added bonus of Fan Favorite Eddie Cochran on screen with a speaking part as well as delivering an Air-Guitar version of "Cotton Picker" (Baum-Baum-Baum).
