Untamed Youth Reviews
It‚??s replete with quaint 1950s-isms, such as one woman in a catfight threatening to give the other an ‚??Italian haircut‚?? (I still don‚??t know what that means) and regularly exclaiming ‚??Chihuahua!‚?? (quite possibly to confirm her identity as a Latina)‚?¶ and Eddie Cochrane.
It can‚??t really be said to be a prison movie. Though a private prison precursor, perhaps.
A 50's Teenspolitation film that is heavy on musical numbers and little else. The owner of the farm is a cartoonish villain and the rest of the characters are poorly developed.
Not really recommended, though if you do decide to sit through it, keep a lookout for rocker Eddie Cochran as one of the teens who sings a song.
Untamed Youth was condemned by the Catholic Legion for Decency. Which is somewhat amusing considering how tame this is by today's standards.
Also stars Lori Nelson as Mamie's sensible sister. Lori Nelson headlined quite a few B-flicks in the mid-50's.
The premise is interesting, but the execution is terrible.
