Not a hint of nudity
18 April 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I'm sure any number of prurient drive-in viewers had their appetites whetted by the title of Naked Youth, probably renamed such so a few more cars would get into the parking spaces. A little stimulus before getting down to business in the back seat. If that was the case they were disappointed because Wild Youth or Naked Youth hasn't even a hint of nudity.

What this film is about is a trio youths Robert Arthur and Steve Rowland who busted out of an honor farm and Jan Brooks the girl who helped them running into a hardened killer and dope peddler Robert Hutton and his strung out girlfriend Carol Ohmart. Hutton robbed and killed a drug mule in Mexico took his supply of heroin and smuggled it back across the border before the cops on both sides caught on.

Arthur and Brooks are basically decent kids, but Rowland is a punk and learns too late he's playing way out of his league.

Wild/Naked Youth was shot on a chump change budget in the Southwest and no one covered themselves in any glory here.
