Before the Second World War, the hopes and expectations of the majority of American 'teenagers' were severely restricted. Money was still tight for most families in the wake of the depression and only a minority of young people could contemplate a college education, so the options for girls were often limited to motherhood and domesticity while boys were still expected to go straight into work. With the post-war affluence of the 1950s however, things began to change. Teenagers received allowances, were given greater free time, and higher education became an option. The result was an independent generation that eagerly embraced the freedom on offer. This new state of affairs, perhaps inevitably, created growing tensions between children and their parents. Many teenagers rebelled against the orthrodoxies of their parents generation and a new phenomenon was born: juvenile delinquency. Exploitation filmmakers waere quick to pounce on this trend and films like Teenage Crime Wave and Juvenile Jungle helped to fuel society's fears of a younger generation that seemed to be out of control.
