"There is actually a DVD edition of this sans MST3K treatment? Amazing, simply amazing. This movie is bad. Not bad in the way that Manos, Hands of Fate is bad, but it's still bad. That's not to say that parental neglect is not wrong, but this movie doesn't really put that across very well. Sure, the "kid's" parents are a gambler and a drunk, but none of that adequately explains why the "boy" (this guy's got to be at least 28) ends up working for a gang. Indeed, part of the reason, this guy starts doing odd jobs for the gangster is for lack of money, which his dad seems to have quite a lot of (I would think if your pops isn't paying enough attention to you, you could at least hit him up for as much money as possible). And nobody (at least nobody with any dignity) would spew forth the speech this poor "kid" does to the judge when he blames his parents for his misfortune (and stupidity)."
Excellent old movie providing insight into the 1940s

"During the 1940s many teenagers were left with little supervision. Fathers were in the war and mothers were working in factories. Incidence of juvenile delinquency soared. This movie focuses on the problem with a very entertaining story of a teenager on the threshold of manhood that, although he has good intentions, ends up on the wrong side of the law. The acting is surprisingly good and the story is never dull. This is a movie to relax with and enjoy a window into the past."
