Historically fun film
26 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is like watching Reefer Madness. It's an old drive-in movie with great original music that got the nickname: Rock-n-roll. Gotta watch. The math is hysterical, literally which is historically hysterically sexist. Really, gotta watch. And it's amazing that Tuesday Weld is 13. My husband graduated high school in 1962. Can't wait to watch it again with him. I can only vaguely remember the itchy scratchy of those crinoline slips. The music and dancing is great! Drive-in movies were not supposed to be watched closely. Most people "fooled around" during the talking and only started paying attention when the music started when they probably got out of their cars and danced. Enjoy this pure entertainment with good cinematography of the dancing and music. And Connie Francis dubbed in for Tuesday Weld is hilarious. I mean, did you know that Rock-n-roll "is the river of music?"
