One of my fav movies given to me by my friend on my visit to New Jersey. It’s a VHS copy of Mamie Van Doren’s best film Girls Town.  Mamie plays Silver Morgan a bad girl from skid row who is accused of murdering her boyfriend, since all the evidence they had was a tube of lipstick she gets sent to a Catholic reform school. Mamie stars along Paul Anka, Mel Torme, and Charles Chaplin Jr. Paul can’t go a minute without breaking into a song, Mamie can’t go anywhere without her bullet bra. And if you think that’s vulgar just hear her jive talk all the nuns in the reform school. Theres even a nice littl number by the Platters for added pleasure.

It was even riffed by Mystery Science Theater 3000, by far one of their best episodes, they were really on.

    Oh man, I LOVE this film!!! A 3 year old Paul Anka sings Ave Maria to a looney tunes 13 year old fan and it heals her crazy brain!! And the magnificent Dick Contino is in this as well….He’s pretty tough..”I WANT AN ANSWER” is his Oscar moment….Lovelovelove this film! It has everything.
