Editorial Reviews

This DVD is a UK release, (PAL Region 0 DVD) it WILL NOT play on standard US DVD player. You need a multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada. Don Gregor is drawn into a life of crime by Vic Brady, who then proceeds to blackmail Gregor's plastic surgeon into changing his face so he can evade the police. Only Ed Wood could come up with this kind of plot; only Ed Wood could come up with this kind of film!

Jail Bait, shot by Wood in between Glen or Glenda and Bride of the Monster, is perhaps the least-known and -loved of his 1950s features, probably because it's more competently produced and slower paced than his more notorious films. The misleading title (referring to a handgun, not an underage girl) may lead to disappointment for the first-time viewer expecting sleazier fare. And Jail Bait just doesn't exhibit the unbridled lunacy and delirious verve of Plan 9 and Glen or Glenda, although there's plenty of Ed's mind-numbing, circular dialogue and a handful of ludicrous plot points for the seasoned Woodophile to savor. The cast features Hollywood veterans Lyle Talbot and Herbert Rawlinson (who died of lung cancer during production), Wood's then-girlfriend Dolores Fuller (later composer of a number of Elvis tunes), newcomer Steve (Hercules) Reeves, perennial sleazemeister Timothy Farrell (Gun Girls, Devil's Sleep, Girl Gang, Racket Girls), Vogue model (and Jack Paar's sexy weathergirl) Theodora Thurman, and apparent nonactor 'Clancy Malone' (actually Scott McCloud, Glen or Glenda's unit director). It's fun to track the conflicting acting styles (and competencies): former silent star Rawlinson (as Dr. Gregor) out-acts the bunch; Fuller is stiff as a board; Farrell and Thurman chew the scenery voraciously; Steve Reeves personifies the 'dumb hunk' (watch him attempt to run lines with Talbot while putting on a coat and tie); and Malone just tries to act his way out of a paper bag. The plot is essentially the story of a jerk (Farrell) and an idiot (Malone) who go on the lam after shooting a cop while robbing a beauty parlor (!?). Logical lapses abound (e.g.Read more ›

Folks, leave your brains at the door. This is good old Edwoodian schlock about a bad boy who gets mixed up with the wrong crowd. Laugh out loud at the outragous stupidity and unintentioned humor of horrible dialougue, bad acting , and sheer senselessness. Who the heck would insist that a doctor under pressure of gunpoint operate on him? (That's just for starters). The surprise ending (which I won't reveal here) is pretty good. But the Blackface minstrel performance as an abomination not only for modern P.C. reasons (as an African-American myself, I've seen far worse in old movies), but it is not funny at all (the guy in Blackface whines and strains his voice in a gross effort to sound "Black" and the gags consist of very bad puns). In true Edwoodian style, it has nothing whatsoever to do with the story. But if you and your friends are filled with beers and pizza and want a good howl for over an hour, then this is for you.

This movie is not good/bad; it's just plain bad. "Jailbait," as a term, which normally means an underage girl, here means a handgun possessed by a parolee! This film has none of the charm of Plan Nine or even Bride of the Monster. It's just bad. It looks like amateur home movies of a community theater rehearsal. Unless you are committed to seeing every Ed Wood travesty, this one you should probably pass up. It's a stinker.

Surprisingly good Edward D Wood effort...all of his movies have a rather, er, umm, organic pace and flavor...this one included. However, it contains plot twists worthy of The Twilight Zone, and did it several years before Serling's TV classic...well worth a watch. Pop the popcorn, sit back, and watch some classic Hollywood schlock...

Ok, this movie is awful and it has a misleading title, but would you expect anything else from Ed Wood? The DVD has clear picture, and the sound is pretty good, if a little quiet. There are no real extras, besides the trailer, but this is probably the best presentation of the film out there, which makes it a must own for hardcore Wood fans.

I love all the old classics and find Amazon has a much larger & nicer collection then anywhere!! Very reasonable to stream and many free if you are a prime member. This movie was very enjoyable...More should try out these older shows.l did just because most of tv and movies have become so meaningless. I remembered watching them on late movies with my grandma...Now I'm hooked!!

This film only has part of the ED Wood class as seen in his standards. There is a twist at the end which we see coming for a country mile. What I found most annoying was the sound track. It consisted of the same few rifts on a Spanish guitar plus piano. Wood does many of his regular "actors" in this film. Lt. Bob Lawrence, Steve Reeves would later go on and play Hercules.

The film also includes a Cotton Watts because.....they could.

This unintentional film-noir spoof has all the marks of Ed Wood's zany script and direction. In other words, it's absolutely hilarious! There's nothing basically preposterous about a plastic surgeon deconstructing a face, yet Wood managed to make this movie a farce--even though he obviously tried to produce a straight-up crime drama. The only competent actor involved, Lyle Talbot, moves stolidly through the story, tossing off the dumbest dialogue with professionalism and aplomb. His sidekick, Steve Reeves, however, flips off his lines as though each word were a fleck of dandruff to be brushed hastily and unobtrusively away. Wood's non-actor girlfriend, Dolores Fuller, looks like a blonde bombshell trussed up in business suits as she strides martially back and forth in her living room. The movie is a windfall of loony lines, cheap props, and ridiculous situations. A purportedly luxurious apartment is so cheaply and sparingly furnished that it looks one notch above a flophouse. Surgery is performed on the couch of a gangster's moll, and then she attends the bandage removal in a fur and cocktail gown. A corpse is propped, standing up, in a shallow closet, prompting the moll to rail about dead men cluttering up her place. As far as so-bad-it's-good flicks go, this one's so terrible it's terrific!
