Wild in the Country 1961
Glenn Tyler (Presley), a surly delinquent from the Shenandoah Valley, is arrested for fighting and put in the custody of his Uncle Rolfe (William Mims). Under the conditions of his parole he is required to have weekly sessions with Irene Sperry (Hope Lange), a psychiatric counselor who discovers Glenn has a talent for writing. Despite Glenn's initial hostility, he comes to trust Irene who encourages him to seek a college scholarship to develop his creative gifts. His love life, however, threatens to undermine his ambitions as he breaks off from his steady girlfriend Betty Lee (Millie Perkins) and begins an affair with Noreen (Tuesday Weld), the local bad girl. Events take a darker turn when Glenn gets into a fight with Cliff Macy (Gary Lockwood) over vicious rumors about Betty Lee and himself and accidentally kills Cliff. Accused of manslaughter, Glenn looks destined for prison until justice is served in an unexpected last minute turn of events.
