When Daddy-O is being chased by the police he is wearing a striped shirt. When he comes to the truck ramp, before the big jump, it changes to a solid color, collared shirt. When the car lands, it changes back to the striped shirt. See more »
This film is extremely dated. It's a typical youth-gone-amok movie that populated drive-ins in the 1950's. Dick Contino, he of the big pecs and mediocre singing voice, does the best he can to save this film. however, it's not enough. Sandra Giles, who played Jana, was definitely chosen for her large chest and blonde locks, and not her acting ability. The guy with the coke-bottle thick glasses really was an offensive stereotype. The main problem is that Daddy-O's character really doesn't give you a lot to like him; the heroine Jana gives you even less to like her.
Avoid this one unless you're watching the MST3K version. "got to keep your pants up!"
