Memorable Quotes and Dialog:

"Listen Sis, I'm over 21. I know what I'm doing." (Don Gregor to his sister Marilyn, as he takes a gun and goes to meet his gangster-friend Vic Brady)
"You know that gun is jail bait." (Marilyn, responding to her brother)
"I don't like dead men cluttering up my place. I want him out of here." (Vic Brady's girlfriend to Vic)
"It's foolproof. Why, with a new face, nobody could ever tell I was Vic Brady... I hope he made me a real nice face. The one I used to have I kinda got used to it." (Vic Brady, waiting for the bandages to come off)

Description by OLDIES.com:

A security guard is shot in a botched robbery attempt, and a wounded witness is able to identify the killers. One of the gunmen, the spoiled son of a famous plastic surgeon, panics and threatens to go to the cops. His partner, a ruthless thug with nothing to lose, has other ideas, though - desperate plans that include murder and radical facial surgery.

This low budget melodrama with a shocking twist was written and directed by Edward D. Wood Jr., the celebrated creator of Plan 9 From Outer Space, cult filmdom's favorite "worst movie." All of Wood's characteristic trademarks are here - the stiff performances, the stilted dialogue, and unbelievable storyline. Added to this mix is a black-face vaudeville skit that pops up out of nowhere. Jail Bait also marks the first on-screen speaking role for young Steve Reeves who later became an international star when he appeared in sword and sandal spectacular Hercules (1958).
