Hang On, We're Gonna Play 'Chicken'

It started with the theft of an automobile hub cap and ended in the violent death of five people, including two police officers. In the 1930's and 1940's the gangsters were men . . . usually men from the rough side of life who struggled for their next meal in the tough Great Depression days. These men fought tough and created gangs that would extort money from small businessmen or run nightclubs with illegal booze or steal shipments of merchandise to sell on the black market. After World War II ended a new kind of citizen emerged . . . The great middle-class, and their 'Baby Boom' kids, who became teenagers and created a new and unique type of gangster . . . Teenage boys and girls . . . Juvenile Delinquents . . . and as often as not there was a new target for their crimes - insurance companies. In this unique crime story that would not be believable ten years earlier or ten years later, a group of teenage boys mostly from the 'good side' of life start out as mischievous lads stealing an attractive hub cap from an expensive car and with the help of a junk yard dealer become expert car choppers. They can spot a disabled automobile along a quiet country road and steal everything of value from the car in a matter of minutes, leaving only a bare skeleton where the new car once stood. Their leader is a rich young kid with a souped up hot rod and a revolutionary new means of communication - a huge walkie-talkie that enables him to be a mile up the road from the choppers and warn them of any approaching people or police. As in all good crime adventures the kids will finally make enough mistakes that they will be caught by the fuzz, but until then we can enjoy an amazing slice of 1961 small town America and see cars with tail fins larger than a killer shark and a custom Ford hot rod that any car enthusiast would give a large portion of their fortune to own today. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
