I've been taking notes for my next book
which has a lot to do with teenagers and
I happened to watch The Big Street (1942).
It's a bizarre movie, especially the big psychological
ending. Que? The highlight was seeing the spoiled
Lucille Ball trussed in the back of a farm truck
bound for Florida. Actually, that would have
improved the movie a lot to develop that long walk
Henry Fonda took, pushing her in a wheelchair along
the Eastern seaboard, but it was all told in flashes.

We also saw a Star Trek episode 'Charlie X' from 1966.
Even in outer space there's teenage trouble.
