THE CRUEL SCHOOL
There's only one lesson taught there—conform or suffer.


Above is a promo for the juvenile delinquent scare flick High School Hellcats, one of only two films ever made by Indio Productions, along with Hot Rod Gang (click this link to see the poster for that). There's not much recommendable about this movie. Plotwise, Joyce, the new girl in school, gets hazed and bullied by Connie, ringleader of the Hellcats. If Joyce doesn't submit she'll find life rough. As Connie puts it, “You won't be invited to any parties and you'll have very few friends. And you'll never have any dates with boys. We'll see to that.” She's the type of chronic pain who thinks clever ridicule is repeating anything an adult says to her, but in a fake obsequious voice. “Connie, will you please be seated?” Connie: “Yes, sir, I'll please be seated.” She'll make you support youthanasia. Heh. While Joyce is lured by the dark side of high school, pulling her toward the light are her square guypal and her goody-good teacher. It's all pretty banal, neither accomplished enough to merit praise nor bad enough to elicit laughs unless you watch it with professional comedians, but in the ’50s even the most forgettable movies sometimes had unforgettable posters, and the above gem is an example of that phenomenon. The half sheet version below isn't bad either. High School Hellcats premiered in the U.S. this month in 1958.

SPEED FREAKS
They drive each other crazy.

It's rare that we can't locate a copy of a U.S. film but it happens sometimes. This poster for Speed Crazy has a hot rod and juvie delinquent look to it that made us want to see the film, but the best we managed was finding a trailer on YouTube. We wanted to share the poster anyway, though, because we love it. We'll keep looking for this one, because who doesn't want to watch a b-flick about a homicidal hot rodder? The last one we saw, The Cool and the Crazy, was a blast, in that terrible sort of way we enjoy. Speed Crazy, which starred Brett Halsey and Yvonne Lime, premiered in the U.S. today in 1959.

1938—Archbishop Denounces Dance Music
The Archbishop of Dubuque, Francis J. L. Beckman, makes headlines in the U.S. when he attacks swing music as a degenerated musical system destined to gnaw away at the moral fiber of young people. His denouncement follows on the heels of the music being banned in Germany due to its African and Jewish origins.
1993—Vincent Price Dies
American actor Vincent Price, who had achieved the height of his fame acting in low budget horror movies, and became famous again as the macabre voice in Michael Jackson's song "Thriller," dies at age 82 of complications from emphysema and Pariknson's disease.
