Banned in several countries upon release for its exploitative depiction of drugs and drag car racing, High School Confidential (1958) is the story of Tony Baker, a cop that goes undercover to expose a drug ring at a high school. Directed by Jack Arnold, and featuring “Hollywood’s Bad Girl” Mamie Van Doren and a youthful John Barrymore, the film also includes an inspiring cameo by Jerry Lee Lewis who performs in the opening scenes of the film.
