Overview

Johnny Legend's Deadly Doubles, Vol. 1

The first release in a projected series of "Johnny Legend's Deadly Doubles" (double-bill DVDs compiled and hosted by trash film archivist Legend), this pairing of "Delinquents vs. Dope Smugglers" melodramas Naked Youth and Teen Mania (a compilation of music clips, TV commercials, and movie trailers) gets an OK but not remarkable presentation on DVD. The liner notes to this disc claim that "Naked Youth was mastered from the finest existing elements and was restored using the Avid DS Nitris system," but that doesn't change the fact the print is scratchy and ridden with splices and blemishes, though the transfer itself -- in its original full-frame aspect ratio -- is sharp and offers a good tonal balance (oddly, much of the Teen Mania material looks noticeably better). The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo (though the materials haven't been remixed), while the dialogue is in English, with no multiple language options. As a bonus, this disc includes "Teenage Crusade," a preview of a series of Christian-themed films produced in the early '60s for use in church youth programs. Fans of vintage B-movie action will be glad to see this picture arrive on DVD, but the quality isn't markedly better than it ever was on VHS.
