TONY'S COMMENTS : Jack Arnold's "High School Confidential" although somewhat dated today was a hip film in its time & one of the first films to deal with the theme of teenagers & drugs. The movie features a memorable introduction with Jerry Lee Lewis playing his piano & singing the title song whilst on the back of a moving truck. Look out for Michael Landon (Bonanza) & Ed Wood favourite Lyle Talbot in small roles. For something a little different you may like to check out this funky 1950's curiosity piece. Mamie fans are sure to get a kick out of this one.
