Fast and Furious

An OK crime and juvenile delinquency flick from the late fifties. I expected worse, me who hates teens and other features showing their behaviour. For instance I can't watch any Dead End Kids film entirely, a torture for me. Well, this movie shows us young men, a little older than usual teens. The story of a young , tall, dark haired and handsome guy who kills a man and has to run away aboard a speed car. He finds a job in a small town as a mechanic in a garage. Of course there are gals, other men - including the good guy of the film - fights, jealousy and also good car races. We are in the late fifties, aren't we?

Good time waster, but unfortunately with a predictable ending.
