I love finding old films... this one is called "Gang Boy"...

The Film, "Gang Boy" (1954). Based on a true story on Anglo and Latino gangs in Los Angeles, California in the early 1950s. The film is also an interesting historical record of west-coast 50s gang life. Cinematically, this film is spectacular, great color and the kids in the film all do a great job in acting. It is one of the few movies that honestly depicts the conflict that often occured between minority youth groups and white youth groups. It examines the Latino American experience and the struggle to attain equality in an unjust society. Creative Commons license: Public Domain.
