There are two movies that are featured in this film that have no entry on IMDB -"Teenage Runaway" (a poster for this adorns the wall at the Astor Cinema) and "Summer Fire" (the group goes to see this at the Astor). There is the possibility that these are fictional items created for this film. There is no copyright acknowledgment in the Credits for "Summer Fire", which would be expected if it was a real film. A search for "Teenage Runaway" on IMDB does not find any movies with this exact title, nor any with this theme from an appropriate time period (pre-1962). See more
