This exploitationer isn't quite as lurid as its title, but it's not from lack of trying. Heroine Carol Wines is in love with handsome highway patrolman William Barrymore, but she's also partial to slick roadhouse proprietor Carl Silvers. Certain that Silvers is a bad influence, Barrymore enlists a battalion of motorcycle cops to "rescue" the girl. Trouble is, she doesn't want to be rescued, though she changes her mind by the time Barrymore has bundled her off to the justice of the peace. The reviewer for the trade magazine Variety was so unimpressed by the film that he resorted to critiquing the rowdy behavior of an audience member!
