THE TRUE STORY OF LYNN STUART 1958
U.S. film. The newspaper headlines read: "Teenage Dope Addicts Killed!" One of the teens was the nephew of Phyllis Carter, a Santa Ana, California housewife who is so outraged that the police can't stop the drug pushers that she volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate a drug ring and bring it down.

Phyllis Carter is given a new identity — Lynn Stuart, an ex-con from back east who served 18 months in prison for bank robbery. The police give Lynn a list of "junkie slang" so she can learn proper drug lingo. Like, crazy man! She learns that "H" means heroin and "nose candy" means cocaine. She can dig it! Phyllis is also given a job as a carhop at a very cool-looking, neon-lit, burger drive-in joint.

Soon, Carter, acting the role of Lynn Stuart, is noticed by drug dealer Willie Down and she enters his drug gang as his "girlfriend." Her husband freaks out when she must pretend to have a romantic interest in Willie. As Willie and Lynn begin to "date" you see terrific footage of 1958 Santa Ana and vicinity including downtown streets, stores, supermarkets, a cool looking used car lot, and the inside of a bowling alley!

As she gets close to Willie, Phyllis/Lynn learns the secrets of the drug smuggling operation. She reports this back to police. Soon there are murders, police raids, and the dope dealers are finally taken down. Phyllis testifies to a grand jury, is reunited with her family, and is relocated to Denver — with the drug gang never knowing her true identity. This is a true story! Betsy Palmer, Jack Lord, Barry Atwater, John Anderson, Rita Duncan, Gavin MacLeod, 'Snub' Pollard, Edmund G. Brown. The True Story of Lynn Stuart!

Plus this bonus selection...

TEAR GAS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT 1962
Police training film shows techniques in using tear gas. Filmed in northern California's East Bay; Concord, Berkeley and vicinity. We see a classroom demonstration where we learn about "sickening gas," then we see angry protesters outside a factory in Berkeley. The cops, wearing gas masks, break up demonstration. It was 1962 but in a few short years real protesters, cops and tear gas would be a familiar scene in Berkeley!
