Did You Know?

While it was largely ignored upon its release in 1964, the film's showing on "Mystery Science Theater 3000" (1988) in 1993 revitalized interest in it, so much so that it was given a premiere showing in Huntington, West Virginia (where it was filmed) in 1994. The premiere was attending by several surviving cast and crew members.See more »

Almost, but not quite deliberate, lampoon of teen delinquent movies, 17 March 2002
Author: guanche from New York City

It almost seems like a satire of teen delinquent movies. However, it takes itself just seriously enough to be even funnier. What's really hilarious is what passes for "delinquent." The tough malt shop gangsters are readily intimidated by, and most respectful to, the police. Some even express concern about their parent's anger if they're out too late. The big drag race is at about 15mph and the only casualty is the retardo "little brother" (he actually appears to be a teenage cretin)and his bicycle being run off the road and crying hysterically---- though not as hysterically as the viewer will be laughing. The "Little Old Lady From Pasadena" would sure blow the doors off this crowd. The teenage chicks victimized by the psycho look like high mileage 35 year olds of the time, and most of the guys seem to be around 30 or so, some complete with receding hairlines.

Most people will find this film quite a bore, but fans of low budget sleazy trash will enjoy it quite a bit.
