Runaway Daughters is a 1956 film. It was loosely remade in 1994. The film was released by American International Pictures as a double feature with Shake, Rattle and Rock.


The script was allegedly based on an incident that writer Lou Rusoff came across when he worked as a social worker.[2]

Anna Sten came out of retirement to make the movie. Tom Conway had a stroke during filming and was replaced by John Litel.[3] The film was shot in nine days, only running two and a half hours into overtime.[4]

Male lead Steve Terrell was signed to a long term contract by Arkoff for 15 films.[5]
