Girls Beware (1961)

"Girls Beware isn't just a warning against the possibility of murder, rape and abduction by strangers, but about the negative consequences of ordinary sexual activity, such as pregnancy and coming under the control of juvenile authorities. It responds with a message of fear to the strong impulses of sexual energy and adventurism that adolescents feel, and implicitly tells its young audience that society cannot offer a safe haven to independent or unguarded women."
