Storyline

Chip is killed accidentally while trying to rape a blonde girl, who runs. Silver becomes the number one suspect even though she has an alibi, but due to previous brushes with the law she's sent to Girls Town, a home for young women in trouble with the law which is run by nuns. Silver is rebellious and causes trouble at the school, and her friend Sarafina totters near the brink of self-destruction because of an infatuation with a young singer. Meanwhile Chip's father hires a detective to find out the truth, and Chip's friend Fred gets Silver's sister in trouble at a drag race. Silver has a lot of problems all right.

DECENT TEEN EXPLOITATION WITH SPLENDID MAMIE VAN DOREN!
8 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This later 60's teen "drama" is not bad. Thank God for the presence of the gorgeous and sassy Mamie Van Doren (as Silver Morgan - what a name). This is the perfect role for her charms and attitude. A very young Paul Anka (his debut) seems like he's 5 years old. Gloria Talbott fine as judo girl. Gigi Perreaux is fresh and naive as Serafina. Mel Torme is a joke has hot-rod punk who drinks milk and bosses women around.

A 5 out of 10. Best performance = Ms. Van Doren. A. Zugsmith also produced HIGH SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL with Mamie. Some good dialogue and Elinor Donahue (FATHER KNOWS BEST) as heart-felt emotion as kid sister. The Anka character is a bit much with his good intentions, but you could tell where the film was going.
