“I killed a cop…So what?” From the mind of cult filmmaker Ed Wood Jr. (Plan Nine From Outer Space) comes the tale of Paula Perkins (Jean Moorhead), the daughter of wealthy parents who leads a criminal girl gang. In no time at all they’re dressing like men and robbing gas stations. They even trash their school! W.M. Morgan took a break from editing episodes of Lassie to direct this trashy drama. Watch it and you'll be leery of any girl gangs in your own neighborhood! (BW)
