Delinquet Daughters (1944) (DVD)

We watched Delinquent Daughters last night. Got it from Amazon for a mere $7.98. I heard about this and many other early Hot Rod films from the Hollywood Hotwheels DVD (see mention below).
The unrestored grainy Black & White film quality was very murky at times, especially during the night scenes. Very 1940's B-Movie, not as formulaic as the 1950's B-Movies. Actually had a car chase and featured a few early Hot Rods (called "jalopys" by the "flatfoots"). Heavy anti-Juvenile Delinquency theme and lengthy diatribe on era peer pressures throughout the film. An interesting movie to add to your vintage film collection, but not much more than that.
