Movie Info

The title tells all in the PRC quickie Delinquent Daughters. June Carlson and Teala Loring play a couple of mature-looking teenagers named June and Sally, whose parents never have any time for them. As a result, June and Sally fall in with a bad crowd and get mixed up in illicit drinking, wild parties and petty crimes. Vivacious French-Canadian comedienne Fifi D'Orsay is cast against type as a hard-boiled roadhouse hostess, while Joe Devlin, who spent most of the 1940s playing Mussolini lookalikes, represents The Law. As was the case in most films of this ilk, Delinquent Daughters ends up in a courtroom, with a stern-voiced judge (Frank McGlynn) admonishing both the girls and their neglectful parents.

Audience Reviews for Delinquent Daughters

I think Deliquent Daughters is a hilarious, underrated B-movie about the evils of letting your children stay out for too long. According to this film, if you let your children stay out too long, they will not only get involved with some shady people, but will also turn into sociopathic, thieving, and murderous people with no conscience. It's a film so highly exaggerated and over the top that I fell in love with it because it made me laugh a lot and it was almost never boring because it was so consistently terrible in funny ways. This a cult classic just waiting to be discovered and deserves to be mentioned alongside such exploitation classics like Reefer Madness. If you love a good B-movie and are up for something you've probably never heard of, you gotta see Delinquent Daughters because it is awesomely bad.

Interesting social commentary from the early 1940's on teenagers running into trouble. Very much a low budget film, but it doesn't hurt the overall impact of the film. The acting is better and more believable than most films of this nature.
