Two police academy cadets (Damon and Hume) are assigned to go undercover at a local high school to investigate drug traffic. Damon is half-black, half-Latino, which makes him a good candidate for this assignment in the racially mixed school. He meets Moreno, a student who has lost her

boy friend in a gang fight. Meanwhile, the gangs rule the school with their dope dealing, knife fights, and terror tactics. THIS REBEL BREED takes a disturbingly naive approach to its subject matter: pushers peddle their wares to six-year-olds, and Damon is obviously wearing makeup so the audience

will know he is part black. Moreno, who gives a fine performance here, would again play a street girl in WEST SIDE STORY, winning win a Best Supporting Actress Oscar.
