"The Wild Ones"-lite is a fun little romp
15 July 2016 | by darylplunkSee all my reviews

This is an entertaining snapshot of Americana, in black and white and circa '58. This film supposedly was about "teen culture" in the US, yet within a short few years (and or course, during The Sixties!), things among American youth would look very different than this!

What a cast, with young hottie Connie Stevens at one end of the spectrum, and seasoned King Kong starlet Fay Wray at the other end! And, soon-to-be TV star regular Steve Inhat makes his screen debut here.

I take issue with, and correct, Moonspinner55, who claims Stevens "erased this title from her resume". She is alive and kicking, and lists this film clearly on her webpage:

Finally, I must brag that I know actor Barry Truex, who plays one of the motor bike tough guys here. He and I presently both are US expats residing in the Philippines, and I'm please to see and chat with Barry from time to time.
