Life among the leather-jacket high school set of Flatbush is the subject of this indie filmed in Brooklyn, NY, locale. Pic is episodic in narrative, particularly in first few reels burdened mostly by irrelevant action, but when actual story line is reached focuses on two of the members of a social club called Lord's of Flatbush.

Perry King and Sylvester Stallone play a couple of would-be toughies who occasionally leave their pals for some dating. Stallone’s romancing leads to getting his pal (Maria Smith) pregnant, and King to getting the final brushoff from femme (Susan Blakely) he pursues. Not too much finesse distinguishes the script, which carries neither warmth nor particular interest for the various characters.

Both actors do well enough by their roles.
