Shocking for it's time......an absolute riot in ours.
14 September 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Extremely (though unintentionally) funny "teen delinquent" movie from the 50's. Except here, the gangsters are a tough girl's gang drenched with lesbian innuendo. The story centers around a straight, clean cut "new kid" at the school targeted for recruitment by the gang. The new girl can't believe her good fortune. So new at the school and suddenly all these neat girls want to be her friends! One of the funniest scenes is when her parents momentarily ask each other if there isn't something a little strange about their daughter's new friends, and then casually shrug off their suspicions, despite the very obvious fact that these rather masculine girls aren't quite normal, to put it mildly. Good Ward and June Cleaver style naiveté.

Great escapist laugh material. Not for everyone, but fans of this type of film won't be disappointed.
