interesting and fun 50s flick
4 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although not a blockbuster,shake rattle and rock is an interesting and fun 1950's movie about the older generation trying to stop rock and roll dancing teens.a short movie and made by the great American international pictures,which is why i wanted to check it out.touch(mike)Conner's who made numerous aip pictures like voodoo woman,swamp women and later on TVs mannix plays a TV disc jockey announcer,the plot is very simple a group of older people led by margerat Dumont try to stop the rock and roll lifestyle,claiming it leads to juvenile crime.yeah we all heard that before.then there's the beautiful and cute Lisa Gaye as the love interest of the TV DJ.who happens to be Dumont's daughter.then there's some great performances by the legendary fats domino,playing himself.aip was wise to cash in on the rock and roll trend of the 1950s,this proved big money at the drive in box office and led to many more.and this was one of the first aip movies,it is a fun movie and its well worth watching.kudos to Samuel z arkoff,James Nicholson,Lou rusoff,and American international pictures for this little gem.8 out of 10
