(Jerry Gross; 1967)

Never was there a more apt name for a grindhouse auter than Jerry Gross.

Vanwall said...

Isn't that pre-Governor Palin?

Tommy O'C said...

"Teenage Mother--means 9 months of trouble!"

Actually, doesn't the real joy of child-rearing begin after the first nine months?

vintage "Juno".

Tom Sutpen said...

It's probably a better movie than Juno (not the most difficult state to achieve, admittedly).

Actually, the film I thought of when I saw this was A Taste of Honey; though Arlene Sue Farber is no Rita Tushingham . . . a good and bad thing by equal measure.

oh that poor girl. First the chain gang, then knocked-up, and finally reduced to consorting with madmen.

Two Girls for a Madman (1968)
(as Toni France) .... Toni
Teenage Mother (1967) .... Arlene Taylor
Girl on a Chain Gang (1965) (as Arlene Sue Farber) .... Nellie

Now, that's what I call a career!

I can only assume she must not have been that good, because playing all those roles in grade Z cinema could easily vault an actress to cult stardom.

Ann O'Dyne said...

... and oh VanWall? - what do you mean 'pre' - think Bristol ... or Lysol

and TS :
Poor Cow maybe not as uplifting as A Taste Of Honey, but the same genre. They used to be referred to as "those British kitchen-sink dramas".

I just saw the trailer for this last week...great New Jersey accent on the narration.
