The Girl in Lover’s Lane (1959) Reviewed


GIRL IN LOVER’S LANE, THE
(1959)
A charming little B Melodrama in which transient train-hoppers are the heroes. The two young drifters settle down for a beat in a small town that ends up bringing them nothing but trouble. A youthful Jack Elan plays the menacing village idiot slash handyman. There’s a back-alley brawl, a whorehouse and a murder before things wrap up. The dialogue is pretty tight and the ending is shockingly sad. **1/2
