TONY'S COMMENTS : Mamie Van Doren plays Silver Morgan a rebellious girl who becomes a suspect in an accidental death. She is sent to "Girls Town", a correctional facility for women that is run by nuns. This cult film is an unusual but unique motion picture. It is 50's nostalgia at its campiest & even features Paul Anka singing "Ave Maria". "Girls Town" is certainly a teen movie with a difference & a must see for Mamie fans.
Perennial B-movie bad girl Mamie Van Doren plays a troubled teen who is sent to a special school, run by nuns for wayward girls, after she's falsely blamed in an accidental death. Wild "J.D." drama from producer Albert Zugsmith also stars Paul Anka a teen crooner, Mel Torme as a hot-rodder, and The Platters as themselves. AKA: "The Innocent and the Damned." 92 min.
