Chip is killed accidentally while trying to rape a blonde girl, who runs. Silver becomes the number-one suspect although she has an alibi, but because she's had previous brushes with the law she's sent to Girls Town, a nun-run home for young women in trouble with the law. Rebellious Silver causes trouble at the school, and her friend Serafina's infatuation with a young singer brings her to the brink of self-destruction. Meanwhile, Chip's father hires a detective to learn the truth, and Chip's friend Fred makes trouble for Silver's sister at a drag race. Silver has problems, all right. Written by

Girls Town is an enjoyable juvenile delinquent flick
With this, I've now seen all the movies The Platters appeared in-Rock Around the Clock, The Girl Can't Help It, Rock All Night, Carnival Rock, and now this one. Another singer that appears is Paul Anka-in fact, this movie has an "Introducing" credit for him but his real first film appearance was in Let's Rock the previous year though this was his first in which he also acts. Unlike The Platters, Anka does not have any dialogue going on during any of his numbers which included his hit "Lonely Boy". He also sang a nice rendition of "Ave Maria". The star is Mamie Van Doren as a woman who's blamed for her ex-boyfriend's murder but she says she wasn't there. Also appearing are Elinor Donahue as her younger sister, Mel Torme as the one who saw the actual murder, and a couple of sons of famous silent comedians-Harold Lloyd Jr. as the one who pays for what he tries to do to whichever woman he was with and Charles Chaplin Jr. as a guy named Joe who announces the rules of a chicken run later in the movie. This is another of Albert Zugsmith's sensationalist movies but it's quite fun to watch and a little touching in spots. So on that note, I recommend Girls Town.
