Instead of working for a living, Duke and Freddie steal auto accessories and sell to a fence. While Duke is out driving with his girl Peg, she tries to dissuade him from a life of crime. Angered, he taunts her with another girl, Janice, who has driven up alongside him, and they have a race. A motorcycle policeman who is chasing them is killed when he crashes into Janice's car, and she is held. Duke, who has driven off, paints his black car light blue to escape detection. Janice learns his license number, and in fear of being discovered, Duke kills her. Duke coerces Peg to leave town with him, committing holdups along the way. Realizing his luck will not hold out, but unwilling to surrender, Duke sends Peg back and remains alone in an abandoned roadside fruit stand, awaiting his fate. Written by

Sweet innocent Peg (June Kenney) becomes involved with small time hood Duke (Richard Bakalyan) and his cronies who spend their evenings stripping cars and selling the parts to a local fence. After a motorcycle cop gets killed in an accident caused by the teenage pair, the police start an all out search for the JDs. Murder and mayhem result. An interesting film noir-ish 50s teen film that is worthy of release on DVD or VHS. Bakalyan puts in an impressive performance as does Kenney, in a role she had a lot of practice getting ready for after films such as CITY STORY, TEENAGE DOLL, and SORORITY GIRL. The supporting cast are also better then average. A little slow going at times but well worth seeing if you can catch it late night TV sometime.
