Synopsis: Tough Teens in Tons of Trouble! Things turn tragic in Teensville when the Smartest Kid in School gets stupid and becomes a HIGH SCHOOL BIG SHOT! Smarty-pants Marvin immediately falls in love with bad-girl Betty when she unexpectedly stops school bully Vince from clobbering him. Though Betty's motive is to con Marv into secretly writing a term paper for her, the poor jerk is so smitten that he decides to impress her by organizing a safe-cracking team to steal a million dollars in drug money! But while Betty wants the dough, she doesn't want Marvin, and manipulates Vince into robbing the robbers in this rarely seen, hilariously mean-spirited teenage obscurity!

Plus: Rich-kid Matt Stevens is "a pampered little punk" with a butler, two cars, and all the money he needs — which doesn't stop this HIGH SCHOOL CAESAR from collecting "protection insurance" from fellow classmates who pay or get pummeled. But when power-mad Matt kills a rival student, then abducts Wanda, the New Girl in School, his birthday party suddenly becomes his very own Ides of March....

Also: Sexy Sue Randall is the girl good-kid Danny wants to marry, and the DATE BAIT that drives bad-boy Brad crazy — so crazy that Brad gets high on the supply of drugs he sells for his older brother, flips out, and kidnaps Sue. Or, as the cops put it: "Dope addict holding girl at gunpoint...." So dig this Teenage Triple Bill from the rock-'n'-roll days of hot cars, cool chicks, and kill-happy kicks!
