Watch how a 50s dope pusher entraps customers and uses them for crime
26 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Girl Gang" starts off with a gang of girls robbing a man and stealing his car, which they take to a dope dealer who supplies a hot car man with heroin. The real story then begins, which has to do with the pusher's customers, his recruitment of new ones, and getting them into crime.

For 1954, this movie shows some amazing stuff that doesn't even appear in modern movies in which drugs play a big part. There is a step by step instruction, very detailed, showing how to prepare a heroin injection and take it. This is shown twice in case you missed it the first time. There is a very detailed exchange of sex for money. There is marijuana smoking. The Hays Code ended in 1968, so how did such a movie slip on by? I do not know. It must have been distributed in ways that were invisible to the censors.

The acting is not bad for the main actors, but the script is herky-jerky. People can't possibly behave as naively or stupidly as the script has them behaving. At one point, the movie goes on for 5 minutes while it shows a pianist playing boogie-woogie and teens dancing to it. This has nothing to do with the story, but one girl does a pretty good jitterbug. At another point, the focus is on police chasing a minor character. The script is weakened by these diversions. When it gets back to the machinations of the drug dealer, it's much better.
