Untamed Youth and Too Much, Too Soon From Warner Archives!



Two rare cult hits are out now on DVD from the Warner Archive. Untamed Youth (1957) stars platinum bombshell Mamie Van Doren playing a rock 'n' roll singer hitchhiking to a gig with her sister, played by Lori Nelson. The sister gets arrested for vagrancy and sent to a sleazy juvenile work farm where singer Eddie Cochran plays one the jailbirds forced to pick cotton. There are wild musical numbers and snappy dialogue like one of Nelson's wisecracks to a guard: "With two heads you'd still be a moron!" Too Much, Too Soon (1958) stars Dorothy Malone in the biopic of the tragic life of Diana Barrymore, daughter of dipsomaniac actor John Barrymore who heads to Hollywood for a career but ends up a hopeless drunk. This is one of those great Hollywood lush flicks that wallows in the sensational but always ends on an uplifting note. Ah, if only life was like that....
