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.
