"High School Big Shot is a 1959 film starring Tom Pittman as Marv Grant, a smart high school student whose plans for getting a college scholarship are threatened by his alcoholic father played by Malcolm Atterbury, and his relationship with the most popular girl in school.
The plot of the film is remarkably similar to that of Stanley Kubrick's The Killing, released only three years previous. Shot in 1958 under the title Blood Money, executive producer Roger Corman released the film as a double feature with T-Bird Gang in his first Filmgroup release.
The film was featured in a sixth-season episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Main topics of ridicules for the writers were Marv's wimpy demeanor, huge lips and awkward appearance, his father's pathetic alcoholism, and the overall bleak nature of the film. The ending in particular prompted the writers to dub it 'one of the most depressing films we've ever seen' and include a skit where the characters of the show 'kill' each other with water guns to mock the fact that most of the major characters were killed in a brief moment of time, nearly one after the other."

... AND NOW, Steve and this blog are both PROUD to once again present today's Church-less Movie of the Week in its entirety FOR FREE! But lets go over a few rules first. There's no talking in Steve's Theater during our feature presentation and talkers WILL be raped, although RAPE IS NOT A JOKE nor can it ever be used in a manner of jest or else the FBI will come to your house and shoot you on sight!
Also, no cell phones or African-American berries in the theater. Please dispose of all trash in its proper receptacle. And NO TEXTING! I'm VERY serious about that one.
And be sure to dim your headlights (where applicable).
ENJOY THE SHOW, Y'ALL!
