origins to the fifties, although severe sanctions against homosexuality kept the
public expressions of the movement to a low murmur. The FBI monitored the

differently from adults, listen to their own music, invent slang words to express
themselves, and start new fads. Often, teenagers feel misunderstood by older

government). Ever since the 1950s, movies have tried to capture this teen
rebellion. On this page you will find summaries to three important youth rebellion
movies of the fifties.

pictures I saw in the newspapers during that period. I remember seeing pictures
of the Mau Mau fighters in Kenya in some of the newspapers published in
