Unexceptional piece of Seventies exploitation, youth-gang division ("That dirty bitch! She bit my ear!"). For sure, it has some time-capsule interest in the areas of hot pants, bellbottoms, and Power-to-the-People, but no more than any number of its contemporaries. So why should it, over all those others, have been singled out in 1996 for reissue? Well, for the simple, question-dodging reason that Quentin (I'm the Pied Piper) Tarantino chose to sponsor it under his Rolling Thunder releasing label. And this is the cinematic connoisseur who professes to revere Howard Hawks's Rio Bravo. With Robbie Lee, Joanne Nail, Monica Gayle; directed by Jack Hill. 1975.
