Movie Info

Producer Albert Zugsmith serves up another all-star exposť with High School Confidential. Delivering a superb performance under the circumstances, Russ Tamblyn heads the cast as "typical" high schooler Tony Baker. Usually seen in the company of his voluptuous "aunt" Gwen Dulaine (the truly impressive Mamie Van Doren), Tony convinces one and all that he's looking for kicks of the controlled-substance kind. In truth, however, our hero is really an undercover narcotics agent named Mike Wilson,

As astringent a vision of the late-'50s as Frank Tashlin's are opulent

A most ridiculous classic cult teen-exploitation film about juvenile delinquents in the 1950s, but not without being entertaining.

Hot stuff in '58, but period sleaze is nostalgic fun now.

Hilariously broad exploitation stuff.

Audience Reviews for High School Confidential!

This movie may remind you of reefer madness and movies like it, and it should it's basically the same kind of film, one that's supposed to make you aware of the dark side of the teenage nightlife or something like that. This movie has a good story, but in the end it's lacking something.

Fantastic Drug Propaganda from the 50's

The beat poetry and Jerry Lee Lewis are particularly choice
