Eddie Crane (Tony Travis) is the leader of a group of young punks. A talent agent hears him singing at a local diner and thinks Eddie has a shot at the big time. A recording session is set, but his friends have different plans. Aftera night of heavy drinking and partying, Eddie's psychotic friend, Mooney (Peter Breck), shoots and kills a bartender, forcing the group into hiding. Eddie decides to do the recording session anyway, resulting in a brutal confrontation between gang members and the police.
Often shown on MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000, this classic of the "troubled teen" films of the late 1950s stars Tony Travis as Eddie Crane, a young punk and aspiring singer who hangs out with a group of "beatniks." Trying to ditch his old friends for the promise of a lucrative recording contract and a respectable life, Tony finds that his friends won't let him go straight that easily.
