These two films are 1970s TV-movie cautionary tales about average American teenage girls who are going down the road to ruin! This title comes on two discs, each film on its own disc.

DAWN: PORTRAIT OF A TEENAGE RUNAWAY 1976
U.S. TV movie. Jan from the Brady Bunch is a total slut! Classic 70s teensploitation! Eve Plumb stars as "Dawn" a 15-year-old who runs away from her boozer mother and suburbian life to the glamour of LA and Hollywood.

Once in LA, Dawn meets Frankie Lee, a teenage prostitute who introduces her to Swan, her stereotypical black pimp. Soon Dawn is putting it on the streets and suffers cruelty from Swan when she doesn't toe the line. Hes gots to keep his ho in line!

Soundtrack includes: The Runaways: "Cherry Bomb." Shaun Cassidy: "Comin' Home Again" and "Amblin'" Be thankful they didn't cast "Cindy Brady" as a prostitute – that would have been too weird!

NBC preceded the September 27, 1976, premiere of Dawn: Portrait of a Teenage Runaway with a "parental discretion" warning. Eve Plumb, Leigh McCloskey, Lynn Carlin, William Schallert, Anne Seymour, Joan Prather, Bo Hopkins.

DIARY OF A TEENAGE HITCHHIKER 1979
U.S. TV movie. Essentially and after-school special airing in primetime, this "scared straight" film attempts to shock and awe teens on the dangers of hitchhiking. The shock is the menacing musical buildup when a psychopath serial killer is on the loose picking up and murdering hitchhikers. The awe is seeing nubile teens in undersized t-shirts and even more undersized shorts and bikinis!

Filmed in quasi-documentary fashion, the story chronicles the gloomy tale of a rebellious, 17-year-old girl who, in defiance of her parents' wishes, hangs out with friends on the local hitchhiking circuit even when it's known there's homicidal maniac in the area.

Besides Charleen "Dallas" Tilton, this movie features several 1970's TV stars like Dick "Eight is Enough" Van Patten, Katherine "Soap" Helmond, Christopher "Peter Brady" Knight, the guy who played "Les Nesman" on "WKRP in Cincinnati" and even "American Pie" Don McLean.

Note: This title comes on two discs.
