Dragstrip Girl (1957)

Louise Blake (Fay Spain) loves hot cars but her parents don’t.

She likes wealthy, existential hot-rodder Fred Armstrong (John Ashley) but her parents don’t.

After a lot of bitchin’ footage of illegal street drags – and even a few legal ones on dragstrips – Louise renounces her evil ways for poor but honest Jim Donaldson (Steve Terrell), who her parents don’t like much either.

A typical AMI flick with the old gang mugging their way through yet another outrageous script. But it may well be Fay Spain’s finest performance.
