Did You Know?

Trivia

Frankie Avalon is seen here as a pre-teenager, in dungarees, just months before his breakthrough hit of "Dee Dee Dinah" was released and Frankie was seen on "American Bandstand" as a new teen idol. This transformation was alluded to in "The Idolmaker"(1980), the story of Rock promoter Bob Marcucci , who worked with Frankie Avalon and others. See more »

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 »

The guest stars steal the show
11 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is the story of a duo two managers (there's no such a thing since Nelson Eddy and Janette MacDonald,so why not them?) pair in order to make money (Pete and Honey= bank and money).The managers have their own ambitions for their respective protégés and after a big hit ,they urge both of them to go single .Then the heartache begins.

Pete and Honey's songs are rather syrupy and bland but their story takes barely 50 % of the time and the rest is given over to the guests :some of them are exciting indeed:Jerry lee Lewis and his fiery "great balls of fire" Carl Perkins ' "glad all over" and doowop whizz kid Frankie Lymon's "your last chance" are gems .Plus Count Basie and Slim Whitman for jazz and C& W fans.
