Tommy (Harold Lloyd jr) is a 17-year old racedriver who works part time at Miltie's (George Cisar) garage to make a living. Since his driving is quite good though, he soon gets offered a crooked job by crooked businessman Grimes - but of course declines. Later, on w whim, he crosses the stateline to secretly marry his long-term lover Helen (Jana Lund), though.

First the 2 youngsters want to keep it a secret from their parents, but they find out anyway & want to force the justice of peace (David Bond) to annul the marriage, but they only get quite a speech from the man to look after their children instead. So it is decided Helen & Tommy will live at Tommy's working-class parents (Lincoln Demyan, Nita Loveless), but that ends in a scandal when the kids get mixed up in a barroom brawl. So now Helen's countryclub parents (Brian O'Hara, Trudy Marshall) take care of the kids, but Tommy finds it hard to accept their strict rules of conduct, & the 2 decide to move into a little house of their own - even if that means Tommy has to shelve his plans to study to be a doctor & instead has to work fulltime at the garage ... & the nightshifts, too.

But still, money is never enough, with Tommy & Helen soon behind with the rent & payments for their furniture, & domestic problems arise as a result. Of course, when under such circumstances Grimes reenters the scene & offers Tommy big bucks for delivering a stolen car, Tommy gladly accepts ...

But even on his first ride - where he's even joined by Helen thanks to a series of unfortunate circumstances - the police spots the stolen car & gives a wild chase, that ends with Tommy & Helen's car going over a cliff ...

Miraculously the 2 youngsters survive, &, put to court, receive mercy from a compassionate judge (Richard Davies) who sees the actual fault in their parents, whom he gives a scolding before releasing the young couple into their care.

 

Despite the involvement of Ed Wood - he was brought in as a script doctor & (allegedly) wrote about the last quarter of the movie - don't expect incredibly inane dialogue here or angora sweaters aplenty.

Still, iÍ want to judge this movie on its merits, not on what it doesn't have (& never claimed to have in the first place):

This is one of the many teen-melodramas produced mainly in the 50's & early 60's full of juvenile delinquency, teen marriages, dragster-racings & people saying 'Daddy-O' & similar hep-talk, all filled up with conservative morals & rather ridiculous plottwists ... in other words, great nostalgic fun.
