Although the cast may have been assembled from somebody's nightmare, it's still one of the nice ensemble casts in movie history.Mamie Van Doren's name heading ANY cast means a nice time will be had by all -- well maybe not ALL, but at least by those discerning cineastes who knew after the 1960 Academy Awards were handed out that 1959's "Girls Town" was robbed by "Ben-Hur." After all, what's a silly chariot race compared to Mamie chewing gum and talking back to nuns? And in "Girls Town" you receive so much more: Gloria Talbott, Elinor "Princess" Donahue, Gigi Perreau, Paul Anka, Maggie Hayes, Sheilah Graham, The Platters, Cathy Crosby, Ray Anthony, Charles Chaplin Jr., Harold Lloyd Jr., and so support us, Mel Torme . . . Mel Torme!!!??? Oh yeah, you also receive this plot, which has something or another to do with 30-year-old high school children (like Mamie) getting in problem with the law and getting sent to the game institution. There's also a nifty drag race -- in a cement riverbed! This movie showed up 20 years after "Gone With the Wind" and details just as much excitement and talent. It supports if you've had a lobotomy prior to viewing the film.
Already on probation for a series of petty crimes, Silver Morgan (Mamie Van Doren) is facing time in juvenile detention after being accused by a witness of pushing her boyfriend off a cliff. Fortunately for Silver, Mother Veronica offers to take her in at Women City - a Catholic home for troubled young women. Silver doesn't wish to fit in and has problem with the another women from the moment she arrives. But when her child sister gets into trouble, it's these very same folks she turns to for help. Can Women City save Silver - and her sister? If Silver Morgan is 16 years old, then I'm a teenager myself. My goodness but Mamie sure should fill-up an outfit! Curves galore! And what type of name is "Silver"? Sounds like a stripper name to me! But even though this is low-budget 50s-style exploitation, Mamie gives a surprisingly decent performance. It's not award worthy or anything, but I enjoyed it.Beyond Mamie, other "highlight" of the film has to be the war stage between those two imposing specimens of masculinity, Paul Anka and Mel Torme. That's right - Paul Anka and Mel Torme in a fight! It's one of the absolute funniest things I've seen in a long time. I mean Mamie's bra is tougher than these two. Still, it's a moment that made the film for me.Realistically, Women City isn't anywhere near as nice as my rating would indicate. But as I've told before, my ratings are based on the entertainment value I search in films regardless of a lot of another factors. If I watch a film and play it and have fun with it, it gets a nice rating. And unlike a lot of another reviewers, I had a blast with Women Town.I watched the Mystery Science Theater 3000 ver of Women City and loved it. The riffs were dead-on and hysterical. I've got no issues rating episode #601 a 4/5 on my MST3K rating scale. This is one any fanatic of the present could seek out.
This film is a nice trash fest. Sometimes there is nothing better than when Hollywood of the 50s and 60s attempts to have teens portrayed by aging icons. This one goes straight thru the stratosphere when they create Mel "the velvet fog"Torme a gang leader of sorts. Mamie van Doren is method sexy. I'm surprised she didn't create the ranks of a major sex symbol. I've everytime found her to be hotter than Jayne Mansfield. If you don't trust me, check out High School Confidential; teenage men would slay for an aunt this sexy. It's nice fun no matter what, but even though MST3K slash out some scenes for their version, their nice snotty comments are priceless. Receive a keep of it, if you can!
