Trivia

In addition to the musical performers, this film had a number of cameo appearances by disc jockeys from across the United States, Canada and Great Britain. This insured the producers of some free radio plugs for the film upon its release. See more »

Goofs

During the montage showing Honey & Pete's first record becoming a hit, the record is shown playing. On screen we see a 78 on the Musicraft label, but in 1957 the record would have been released as a 45 and Musicraft had been out of business for 10 years. See more »

Some Very Brief Rewards
22 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here we go again with a virtually unwatchable, wretched Hollywood attempt to bring the success of early Rock n Roll to the screen. Trouble is they never did get it. They saw this music as a threat or at the very least a fad and they didn't expect it to get any respect or consideration being nothing more than a novelty or believe it or not, a Communist plot.

The few good acts are slipped in and out of other "respectable" pre-packaged pap and cornball crooners. The lead kids sing more than anybody and they are presented as to epitomize what was deemed desirable to all except juvenile delinquents and God-forbid, race record fans.

If you can avoid turning it off there will be some rewards if very brief. The always rockin', Jerry Lee Lewis...the fun rockabilly sound of Carl Perkins...Frankie Lymon for some Doo Wop...and the velvet voice and R&B rhythms of Fats Domino.

All of these greats do only one song but it is really-cool that they were captured on film. Get out the cut and paste program.
