Goofs

It is obvious that Buddy Knox and his group are lip-synching to their record "Hula Love" since their electric guitars are not plugged in. This is also true of every other act in the movie that uses electric instruments. 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, 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 "Actor" Kids Sing more than anybody and they are Presented 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 it was captured on Film. Get out the Cut and Paste Program.
