A Real Hopped-Up Deathtrap

Chuck Connors is Ben, a cop who runs a dragstrip where teens can race their hotrods under safe conditions. When a boy dies in an accident (on the street, not the strip) young mechanic Jeff loses his license, so he can only work on cars and brood. The titular girl is Lisa (Lori Nelson, Revenge Of The Creature) a gorgeous blonde who is no slouch on the track herself. When cocky bastard Bronc blows into town (how do we know he’s a bad kid? Black leather jacket. Dead giveaway in the 50’s) pushing people around, harassing Lisa, driving recklessly…even unplugging the juke at the maltshop, Jeff must step up to teach the punk some manners…so  you know there’s gonna be fistfights, a chicken run, the whole nine. Meanwhile, Frank Gorshin provides comic relief as the smart aleck Flattop…
