Arkoff. Reform School Girl was one of many sexploitation films released by American International Pictures (AIP) during the 1950s and 1960s. AIP’s films during this period were largely focused on juvenile delinquency. As part of the AIP formula, young girls were typically depicted as “good” or “bad” the latter of which were petty criminals, gang members, or the girlfriends of gang members. Other AIP films in the same genre included Drag Strip Girl, Hot Rod Girl, and High School Hellcats. The film marked the acting debut of Sally Kellerman. While filming the movie, she met Vickers and Byrnes and the three of them became lifelong friends. The entertainment site Rotten Tomatoes gives the movie a “0%” audience rating.
