Luigi Martinati has created a stunning poster for this teen exploitation film. Ironically, the piece has a sensor stamp on it stating in Italian that minors of 16 years of age and under are forbidden!

This rare poster has only surfaced a few times.

This American teen film was directed by Howard W. Koch. The cast includes Mamie Van Doren and Lori Nelson, who play two sisters sentenced to farm labour on a cotton field for skinny-dipping in a rural town whilst hitchhiking to Los Angeles. The owner of the farm is corrupt, and has sponsored the local prison in order to get cheap labour so that he can undercut his competition. The prisoners working on the farm, most of whom are rock 'n' roll addicts, are badly treated. The scam is uncovered by the judge's son who gets a job there, and who falls for one of the sisters. It's a story of "youth turned rock 'n' roll wild and the punishment farm that makes them wilder!"
