Started The Kominsky Method on Netflix, and it seems very binge-able. Watched the first three episodes, and it is very good so far. Douglas and Arkin are great together.
Indeed; great tongue-in-cheek narrative in the style of the old anthology films a la Creepshow. Was always a favorite of mine, came out when I was about to graduate from college."Chill or be chilled" Fun film !
Thanks, Rob.This month-long Spotlight examines the “juvenile delinquent” movies of the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s, when the subject of youthful alienation and anti-social behavior was a popular one in both exploitation flicks and more serious studies. Movies about youthful crime had been made throughout the 1920s and ‘30s, but it was in the following decades that the issue was presented as a social problem in need of solutions. TCM Juvenile Delinquent films cover the period 1945-1967 .
Untamed Youth (1957)
Spotlight: Juvenile Delinquents - Thursdays in June
A hugely under-appreciated B movie. Surprisingly good performances from Mamie Van Doren, Lori Nelson and a largely youthful cast. (The numbers) are well integrated into the story and interestingly staged. Miss Van Doren establishes her right to be classified as a female Presley with the rock-and-roll numbers.
Mamie Van Doren's 1957 movie "Untamed Youth".
Director:Howard W. Koch
Writers:John C. Higgins (screenplay), Stephen Longstreet (story)

Shocking Juvenile "Punishment" Farm!
Kids Turned Rock-N-Roll Wild -- and the "House of Correction" That Makes 'Em Wilder!
Starring the Girl Built Like a Platinum Powerhouse -- Mamie Van Doren!
Untamed Youth (1957), an exploitation film directed by Howard W. Koch and released through Warner Bros., stars Mamie Van Doren and Lori Nelson as sisters who are arrested for skinny-dipping and sentenced to labor on a farm run by corrupt owner John Russell. Van Doren, playing a would-be musical star, has some musical numbers in which she reportedly became the first female to perform rock ‘n’ roll songs on film.
The ad campaign for Untamed Youth (1957) was lurid and sensationalistic -- just like the movie itself. A low-budget, campy exploitation film designed to showcase the huge-chested, blonde starlet Mamie Van Doren, Untamed Youth succeeded both in making certain critics and morality crusaders rather angry, and in earning quite a bit of money for distributor Warner Brothers. (When the Catholic Legion of Decency condemned this movie, it only made more people want to see it.)
This movies has a lot of cheesy fun . Thoroughly Enjoyed it
