Did You Know?


The song "China Star" (playing on the radio in the background at approx. 00:10:00) tells the story of a cabaret dancer in Saigon, long before anyone had heard of Viet Nam. This song has not been included on any of the film's soundtrack releases (despite the fact that the "Bob" character predicts "I think that one'll sell a million"). See more »

Rock on
20 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is both one of the truly terrible films ever shown in a movie theater (?) and an absolutely vital part of rock and pop culture history. It's the local Dallas talent in 57, and the influence of Elvis on one of his most passionate imitators is deeply felt. Then we see some of the local bands, both black and white, get down. Oh yeah, there is a story that has to be about the worst written, acted, and directed things ever put on film. You will roll around on the floor laughing, but these are also just local kids. There is a naturalness to there bad acting that is very authentic. You feel if you were back in that time and place, this is what the people would be like. There is nothing else quite like "Rock Baby, Rock It."
