Second Features

by Edward 19 September 2009

When I was younger I vividly recall that my first introduction to America apart from Western Films starring such luminaries as Audie Murphy were second features showing teenage life in America.These inevitably were of two sorts Dragster and Surfer movies set as far as I can recall in an endlessly sunny California.Slight plots and each in their own way mythic.Of the many I must have seen not a single title is recallable though they were standard fare second features and were for me a first introduction,albeit a distorted one to America.Does anyone else recall these incursions into what by contrast seemed a much more prosaic British life at the time.
