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 is remarkably similar to that of Stanley Kubrick's The Killing, released only three years previous. High School Big Shot was featured on an episode of the popular comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000. Filmed 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.
