Writer-director Philip Dunne, collaborating with Edith Sommer on an adaptation of James Leo Herlihy and William Noble’s play, brings us the 1959 drama romance Blue Denim, an echt-Fifties “issue movie” about a pair of teenagers (Bunny Lake is Missing‘s Carol Lynley and The Member of the Wedding‘s Brandon De Wilde) who find themselves facing the horror of an unwed, unwanted pregnancy.

These are “good kids,” for whom things go wrong, to the dismay of parents, friends, educators, all of whom, somehow, have failed to educate these children: babies having babies, indeed. Highlighted by a score from the singular Bernard Herrmann (Jane Eyre), Twilight Time’s Blu-ray edition of the movie has the following bonus features:

-Isolated Music Track
-Original Theatrical Trailer

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to head over to the Twilight Time site or that of distributor Screen Archives NOW so you can put in your prebook order!
