I have read that this is considered a lost movie.no known copies exist
28 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have read a couple of reviews in movies history books,and both seem to agree Bop Girl goes Calypso is a lost movie.....no known copies of the movie are available for evaluation.If this is true,and someone out there has a copy,please let us know and start burning the copies for all of us to enjoy this camp classic! Also,I have also read that the movie was originally titled Bop Girl,and the goes Calypso was added at the last minute to cash in on the then recent Calypso craze.Apparently,from some still photos of the picture that i have seen,there were more rock and roll acts in the movie than there were actual Calypso acts.But no matter.This looks like it was another good example of the low budget music movies of the fifties aimed for the teenage audience.It would be great to see Judy Tyler in the starring role,since she only appeared in one other movie before her death.
