I Accuse My Parents

Overview

I Accuse My Parents was one of PRC's entries in the "wartime juvenile delinquent drama" sweepstakes, as exemplified by such earlier films as RKO's Youth Runs Wild and Monogram's Where are Your Children?

Overview

I Accuse My Parents was one of PRC's entries in the "wartime juvenile delinquent drama" sweepstakes, as exemplified by such earlier films as RKO's Youth Runs Wild and Monogram's Where are Your Children? This time around, it's high schooler James Wilson (Robert Lowell) who suffers from lack of parental supervision. As James' parents (John Miljan, Vivienne Osborne) blithely pursue their social life, the boy gets mixed up with the standard bad crowd, who smoke, drink, gamble, and drive fast cars. Inevitably hauled into juvenile court, James blames his parents for his present sorry state-whereupon the Judge (Edward Earle), anticipating the "victim of environment" mindset of the 1980s and 1990s, likewise reprimands Mr. and Mrs. Wilson for their neglect. Billed first, Mary Beth Hughes has little to do in her brief scenes as a good-time girl. I Accuse My Parents was recently given a well-deserved going-over by TV's Mystery Science Theater 3000.

    Pure ignorance...

    I happen to watch this "film" in the, well deserved screw job, Mystery science theater 3000 version which i highly recommend. The Sheer ignorance of this film is mind boggling, even if you take into consideration the release of the film in the 1940's. While it is important for the parents to be involved in the childs development, there is some responsibility the child or in the case of the film, young man, must take. A point the cast of MSTK points out brilliantly. dont waste your money in this, but rent the MSTK 3000 version... it even comes with a 1940's documentary about the farm trucker, which was equally as ignorant and entertaining.
