Date Bait (1960)

Too young to know. Too wild to care. Too eager to say “I Will!”

Danny (Gary Clark) and Sue (Marlo Ryan) are a young couple who want to get married and find some peace and security.

Unfortunately, they can get none thanks to their parents, gangsters, and the chick’s dope-crazed ex-boyfriend, Brad Martinelli (Richard Gering), recently returned from six months of rehab.

By the last reel, justice is done (although the parents deserve more comeuppance than they get) and Danny and Sue live happily etc . . .

It’s cheaply made, it’s lurid, it’s great.

At sixteen, a girl learns about love one way or the other!
