THE VIOLENT YEARS deals with the theme of juvenile delinquency. This all girl gang actioneer about four gals left to their own designs is as hilarious as it is socially relevant. These high school age babes masquerade as guys to rob gas stations, vandalize school class rooms, swap lead with cops, and--check it out--they gang rape a defenseless guy in the woods! Paul Parkins (Jean Moorhead of GUNMEN FROM LAREDO) lives for thrills and chills. Her conscientious newspaper editor father, Carl Parkins (Arthur Millan) spends more time at the paper covering the exploits of her mysterious gang than at home with his daughter, while her social register mother, Jane Parkins (Barbara Weeks of THE GUILTY GENERATION) cavorts at nightclubs and bemoans the plight of homeless children at her charity functions. Paula runs around with three other desperate dames: Geraldine (Joanne Cangi), Georgia (Theresa Hancock), and Phyllis (Gloria Farr) who have no qualms about killing, robbing, and raping. Actually, Paula is the leader. She uses the information that her father obtains from the cops to keep her gals from getting caught. Crime is has no consequences for them until they try to trash a public school and make too much noise. The police arrive and they shoot it out with our anti-heroic heroines and left two on the pavement. Before they encounter the cops, these dastardly dolls take their stolen items and fence them to Sheila (Lee Constant) who saunters around in wearing a bra engineered to display her torpedo shaped breasts. THE VIOLENT YEARS concerns a topic which was the rage of the last 1940s and the 1950s, juvenile delinquency. Indeed, the subject matter provides some gravity to this film. Unfortunately, PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE writer & director Ed Wood penned the screenplay, but he did not not helm this flick. Jean Moorhead achieved initial fame or infany as the October 1955 Playboy Playmate of the Month. THE VIOLENT YEARS qualifies as a notorious little exploitation B-movie class that Mystery Science Theater 3000 could not resist ridiculing. Like most of the best works of Ed D. Wood, it took another director to helm it and William Morgan of SIERRA SUE called the shots of this vintage flick.
