A rich but lonely woman, Frances Austen, one day invites a homeless young man from a nearby park to her apartment and offers to let him live there. However, she has no intention of ever letting him leave again.

Scotty White (age 19) must stop 'going steady' with Janice Wilson (age 16) when Janice's parents intervene. Frustrated, idle and without Janice's restraining influence, Scotty encounters Cholly and his band of disorganized, fun-loving delinquents.

About the 13:30 mark, when Scotty (Tom Laughlin) is being invited out of Janice's house by her dad, the front door (interior) is a beautiful leaded glass number. As he walks away from the house (exterior) the door is solid. Not Glass. See more »
The story you are about to see is about violence and immorality - teenage violence and immorality, children trapped in the half-world between adolescence and maturity - their struggle to understand, their need to be understood.

Regardless of what some of the other uninformed reviewers here may think, this is a great little picture of the 1950s teen scene.
Of course we don't have the budget or production values of Dean's "Rebel" but the compact story and action move along swiftly.
It's interesting to watch such a young Billy Jack, and of course Dick Bakalyan turns in a great performance of, what else, a punk.
And yes some of the other cast members, besides Lauglin, DID continue on in the business quite successfully...Miller stayed busy, finally landing a recurring role in a soap, and all you have to do is turn your set on any time any day and you can find Bakalyan in something, the guy must be filthy rich.
A good flick.
