Mamie Van Doren---When Did She Sign for "Untamed"?

Not gonna make a cotton picker out of me!, 4 May 2014
Author: Aaron1375 from Alabama

Saw this on an episode of MST3K and not the type of movie I would have ever watched without the gang of the satellite of love. A rousing musical type with an evil farmer. The film though does have a the benefit of having a very attractive leading lady in Mamie Van Doren. Unfortunately, usually when the camera is on her, she is singing a very bland tune that sounds pretty much like everything else in the film. The other girls are cute too, but you get to see Mamie's panties and she is definitely the one whose looks stand out the most.

The story has a judge who sends teens and youthful offenders to a farm to work out their sentences. The conditions on the farm are harsh and the sun outside is brutal. However, though the teens are exhausted, they somehow manage to party during the night! The owner of this farm is dastardly though, and he has evil schemes aplenty. One of the people who are forced to work on this farm is having severe problems, but the owner does nothing to help this person.

This movie made for an okay episode of MST3K, but I prefer it when they make fun of horror or science fiction films. This one is almost a musical which does not work as well with the riffing format as other film genres. The movie taken by itself just does not work for me, because it is more of a musical than anything else. The film is almost like one of those prison films of the 70's, just minus the soft core sex scenes. This was in the 50's though so a peek at some panties as the hot girl twirls is about as good as it got during mainstream films during this era.
