Short, but not Sweet
Director Edward Dmytryk warns us of the "menace of girl hitchhikers" in this obscure B movie starring Nan Grey and Mary Anderson as sisters who are forced to work for the mob after getting out of reform school. The girls join a vast network of highway tramps who lure lustful male travellers to mob-owned motor courts where they are fleeced. Though silly and predictable, it does eventually deliver some entertainingly campy excess.
