"It's interesting when you think about how boring most of us perceive the 1950s to be to think that counter culuture and rebellion (really the seeds of the 1960s) all started in the post WWII era when there was suddenly not much for teenagers to do in the suburbs.
I liked how these films gave me a sense of how terrified people were that this generation was going to become a nightmare (borne out by the Flower Child thing when these kids got to college) and how they did everything they could to scare the heck out of the kids to get them to shape up.
Of course teh Wild Ones of this DVD are not that wild by todays standards (they drink beer, make out and listen to rock music) but it's cool to see this put into context."
