" Youth Turned 'Rock-N-Roll' Wild and the 'Punishment' Farm that Makes Them Wilder!"
Synopsis: Sisters Jane (Van Doren)
and Penny are arrested for hitchhiking on their way to Los Angeles
when they stop for a quick skinny dip in a rural town. They are
convicted and sent to a Cotton and Potato farm singing, dancing
and picking cotton for thirty days instead of Jail. The Farm owner
is in cahoots with the judge and sheriff and tries to take liberties
with some of the ladies, especially Jane. The film sounds like
a depressing Jail/ Prison drama but is actually the opposite.
Most of the film is upbeat and fun and the only thing " untamed"
is the Rock and Roll and of course the voluptuous MAMIE.
Consist of about 25 local Hollywood California swing dancers.
and Nikki Brady
(Gil wears hat & glasses, Nikki short black hair.)
Southern is also featured dancing, Frieda

and Roll, aka: Jitterbug,
aka: Classic West
in this film. Two swing dance males dance together and switch
leads in the Cotton Picking scene. Later in the Recreation Hall
they do some good 7 to 8 minute Jitterbug dancing and romping
around via the dance to the song " Oobala
sung by Mamie Van Doren.
