TheseMoreJUNIOR BAD GUYS is a tongue-in-cheek look at the great bad boy movies of the 1950s. Film essayist and professor of literature, Dr. William Russo, turns his wit on the movies so fondly recalled as shocking and disturbing in their heyday.

These B-pictures, some from poverty row studios, some from the big studios, now seem quaint, but as depictions of an era, the juvenile delinquent genre terrified adults back then--and seduced the teenagers with the promise of cool chicks, hot rods, and wild times. The book covers everything and everyone from REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE to I WAS A TEENAGE WEREWOLF.

Read about Elvis Presley and his early delinquent roles to the surprising debuts of Michael Landon, Steve McQueen, Audie Murphy, and Jack Nicholson. JUNIOR BAD GUYS sharply recalls the legendary stars in their first roles as jive-talking, drag-racing, hair-combing, street-fighting bad boys with cool sneers.
