HIGH SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL!
1958, MGM/Cinema Associates, 85 min, USA, Dir: Jack Arnold

“Behind these ‘nice’ school walls – a teacher’s nightmare! A teen-age jungle!” More interested in studying marijuana than mathematics, tough new kid Tony Baker (Russ Tamblyn) makes a beeline for the wrong crowd in this fast-paced exploitation fave. The cast is as wild as the action, with memorable appearances from slumming Hollywood scions Charlie Chaplin, Jr. and John Drew Barrymore, recovering teenage werewolf Michael Landon and the immortal Mamie Van Doren as Tony’s hot-to-trot aunt. Rocker Jerry Lee Lewis sings the classic title song.
