Movie Info

There's a growing epidemic among the kids at Santa Bella High: marijuana cigarettes. When slang-talking hipster Tony Baker (Russ Tamblyn) transfers to the school, he noses out the action right away, finding a connection in hotshot J.I. Coleridge (John Drew Barrymore). J.I.'s steady girl, Joan (Diane Jergens), is hooked on reefer and down to her last nickel, so Tony offers to help her score by meeting with big-time dealer Mr. A (Jackie Coogan). But are Tony's motives really what they seem?

Audience Reviews for High School Confidential!

  • Sep 05, 2010
    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
