Alternate Versions

When it played the Road Show circuits, the movie contained an announcement for an intermission. This would be followed by a live appearance by "Mr. Curtis Hayes", a "hygiene expert" (played by various actors) who would pitch a book on sexual reproduction. The Something Weird Video DVD release of Street Corner contains new footage featuring David F. Friedman playing the role of Mr. Curtis Hayes inserted into the film after the intermission announcement. See more »

Exploitation Movie
28 July 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Marcia Mae Jones is pregnant. Her boyfriend rushes home to marry her, but is killed on the road. Unable to talk about it with her parents, she goes to an abortionist.

It's a well-meaning exploitation picture that end with Joseph Crehan narrating a poorly drawn cartoon version of a woman's reproductive system. That pretty much sums up this movie: good intentions, bad execution, and they probably made a nice profit on it, four-walling the film to teenagers hoping for some dirty pictures and parents, like Miss Jnes' parents in this movie, too embarrassed to discuss these matters with their teenagers.

Looking at it seventy years later, the lines are banal, the actors are directed to speak to the camera when they are supposed to be talking to each other, and the sets indicate that as little money as possible was spent on the production.
