Turned Out to Be a Pretty Good Movie
7 November 2013 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

"Donna Price" (Gloria Castillo) is a teenage girl who lives with her Aunt Rita (Claire Carlton). The problem is that the man Rita has married, "Mr. Horvath" (Jack Kruschen) is always trying to make a play for Donna. So when Donna decides to get away from Mr. Harvath, by going joy-riding with a young man she hardly knows things begin to take an immediate turn for the worst. She soon realizes that "Vince" (Ed Byrnes) is a violent, hot-headed thug who has stolen the car she is riding in. To complicate matters, Vince kills a pedestrian while trying to evade the law leaving Donna alone to face charges. Fearing for her life if she testifies against Vince, she remains silent and is subsequently sent to a reform school for juvenile delinquents. But even there things begin to get out-of-control. At any rate, rather than reveal what happens next I will just say that this turned out to be a pretty good movie. The acting was decent and there were some attractive young ladies like Yvette Vickers (as "Roxy") and Luana Anders ("Josie") which certainly didn't hurt the overall scenery. I also liked the 50's slang the girls tossed around at every opportunity. Even so, this film may not suit everyone's taste. Slightly above average.
