CITY ACROSS THE RIVER 1949
U.S. film. Early juvenile delinquent drama set in the slums of Brooklyn, the film follows the exploits of the Amboy Dukes, a teenaged street gang. Elvis took his hair style from Tony Curtis. Dig it! Cool teen dance scene with a boogie woogie band playing!
The Dukes decide not to pay the band and beat the heck of them! Peter Fernandez, Joshua Shelley, Tony Curtis, Mickey Knox, Joe Turkel, Horace (Stephen) McNally, Thelma Ritter, Luis Van Rooten, Sue England, Richard Jaeckel, Barbara Whiting, Richard Benedict, Sharon McManus. City Across The River!

ASK ME, DON'T TELL ME 1958
U.S. educational film. Wow, what a great short film! It's got awesome, raw, do-it-yourself rock n roll by The Five Chips who pound out Chuck Berry and Doo Wop tunes! Filmed in San Francisco, dozens of real street gangs are represented. Cool ducktailed gangs on the streets and in pool halls. The gangs learn to help out in their community (with cigarettes dangling from their mouths!)
