The Devil on Wheels Details


Darryl Hickman, older brother of Dobie Gillis star Duane, toplines this campy juvenile delinquency film directed by Crane Wilbur (Crane Wilbur). The plot concerns a group of teenagers who hold illegal drag-races, often leading to death and police involvement. Terry Moore, using the name "Jan Ford," appears as Rusty, who is locked in a morgue overnight. The hip lingo will be hilarious to modern viewers, although Wilbur's typically atmospheric use of light and shadow give the film a hard-boiled edge. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
