With a hidebound conservative element running things in a small town, the local teenagers have no choice but to seek entertainment elsewhere. With Stutz Bearcats at the ready, hip flasks in hands, and raccoon coats draped around their shoulders, the teens indulge in all sorts of sinful and potentially fatal activity outside the city limits. What is needed is a dynamic political leader who can make the community appealing enough to attract wholesome forms of entertainment for the kids. The district attorney (Mahlon Hamilton) is such a man; by bringing industry to the small town, he improves the economy, enabling the youngsters to seek out less risky diversions in their own home town. Enemies of Youth was cheaply but effectively produced.
