Editorial Reviews

Actors: Robert Vaughn, Norma Moore, Diana Darrin, Billie Bird, Jeanne Cooper, Ron Hargrave, Jennifer West, Richard Evans, Warren Parker, Ralph Manza, Jack Nicholson. Our first feature: Unwed Mother – Betty (Norma Moore) moves from a farming community to Los Angeles. She falls into the clutches of a super-cad (Robert Vaughn) and ends up abandoned and pregnant. After visiting a drunken abortionist, she decides to give the baby up for adoption … but has a change of heart. The climax is a classic of melodrama from a master of melodrama, Walter Doniger, director of TV's "Peyton Place." The second feature Too Soon To Love is about two teenage lovers from dysfunctional families that go "all the way." She becomes in the family way, flees from a wicked abortionist and later attempts suicide. He steals money to retain a "real" doctor! This classic teenage melodrama was the directorial debut of Richard Rush ("The Stuntman"). DVD Bonus & Features: Original Theatrical Trailers, Commentary by assistant director Lindsley Parsons Jr, Original Advertising Materials, Bios, Photo Gallery: DVD-5, Dolby Digital, 159 minutes, B&W, 1.85:1, NR, 1958 & 1960.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprised me...the movies are actually good! June 11, 2006
By Tintan
I was expecting exploitation films, but these are well-made dramas, and it is nice to see 50's B movies that are so sharp and clear...widescreen, too. Robert Vaughn is a wonderful cad. Interesting commentary track by Robert Justman who was assistant director on the movie. Of course, he went on to to Star Trek fame, and tends to talk more about S.T. than "Unwed Mother." That's fine by me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Corny, but even better without the extras February 20, 2008
Verified Purchase
Norma Moore and Robert Vaughn do fine considering the material they have to work with in Unwed Mother, that is, if you can believe TV's handsome hero in "Man From Uncle" is well cast as a thief/gigilo father of the baby. He's just not mean enough to be "smearing" every sweet young thing he touches like his landlady says. The theme song is a bit corny even for 1960. Robert resorts to robbing a movie theatre to pay back the salary our girl in trouble loans him (a forgivable crime at 2008 prices!)The second half of the film improves where we finally discover Moore is pregnant and must live in a home for other single moms on probation. She won't give up her baby even then..but couldn't the older couple adopt both her and the baby? Extras subtract from a badly miscast film when Bob Justman uses all his time to talk about Patrick Stewart in Star Trek.

1.0 out of 5 stars VCI DVD disaster July 24, 2008
"Too Soon to Love" has been artificially stretched from a full frame print then matted to simulate widescreen. Faces are squished (short and fat). On top of that, it is still pan and scanned. I could not watch more than 5 minutes. "Unwed Mother" is watchable, but it is a matted presentation of a full frame print. Chins and foreheads are frequently chopped off by the matting. Absolutely horrible DVD presentation from VCI.

4.0 out of 5 stars VCI!!!!! October 7, 2013
By larryj1
The audio/video on this VCI release is pretty good. If you listen to the commentary on Unwed Mother you won't learn much of anything about the film. He spends 90% of the time talking about other projects he was involved with. Too Soon To Love doesn't have an end title, but it may have been made that way. Another reviewer already mentioned the fake widescreen. Otherwise, I found the films entertaining.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sincere Grade B feature re teenage problems of 1960 December 17, 2007
This black and white film - I am reviewing only TOO SOON TO LOVE - is an earnest production following in the footsteps of REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE in exploring the newly permissive world of the American teenager. The plot is very simple. Boy meets girl, they fall in love, she gets pregnant, they plan abortion, she attempts suicide, he steals money, they reconcile and bravely face the world together.

The print in this double feature dvd runs 81 minutes, not the 88 minutes claimed for the film on IMDB. Richard Evans does a perfect James Dean impersonation - he has the facial expressions, the vocal mannerisms, the hand and body movements down to a "t." It's an earnest though not great performance. The young actress who plays the girl is competent.

It's fun to see a very young Jack Nicholson as a sleaze who forces himself on our heroine at a drive-in. A fight ensues between Evans and Nicholson. He's in it for about five minutes total.

Competent film of its era but only B grade.
