    I won't even go into the fact that Paul Henried directed this triumphantly trashy youth-market extravaganza. Let's just say Charlotte Vale would not approve. Talk about non-stop. This is one whirlwind of activity for our young heroine, all jam-packed into less than an hour and a half. Homelife bores and repels her, which, of course, is the natural starting point for any wayward teen. She forsakes her drunkard father and saintly older sister who has supported them and heads off (hitchhiking, of course!) to a life of - Gasp! - crime, starting with a job in a clip joint, seperating all the middle-aged sad sacks from their hard-earned dollars. It all comes so easy to her that she soon goes for a guy's watch and automobile, as well as the wallet. Now the heat's on, so she books to L.A., where she falls in with the mandatory gang, led by - Don't ask. - Troy Donahue. They hatch a plan to rob gazillions in diamonds from the local post office, apparently the clean-cut version of a crime spree. They all get jobs with this federal agency, though they all "forgot" their social security cards. No problem; they have nice faces. The dry run is hilarious, as they tie up the street outside the post office with jackhammers and a flotilla of their cool cars. When the big day arrives, so does the good sister, who manages to foil the plot and put these blights to society away where they belong, except for the underage sister, who gets probation. So the moral would be...Oh, God. Please don't ask me to make sense of this. Just enjoy it for what it is: WAY over-the-top nonsense about teens gone wrong. TCM has shown this in the past, so keep your eyes peeled.
