ABSTRACT
The article reports on the juvenile delinquency films in the U.S. It reveals that these films are the stuff of the 17,000 cases that annually pass through the Juvenile Court of Memphis and such examples are among the vivid images caught by Frederick Wiseman's cameras for a riveting 144-minute documentary on that court. It also notes that the stinging scenes of Juvenile Court have caused considerable controversy and the judges who have seen it have unanimously held it in contempt with one basic objection, which is the permission to film actual cases.
