Trivia

This movie was filmed in 1962 during the administration of President John F. Kennedy, the youngest elected president. One of his campaign pledges was "Let's get America moving again." In this movie, there are subtle references to this era, such as: "America is on the move", "Progress . . . That's what the Twist is. New ideas, new dances, new comedy, new faces. America's always moving forward" and "I realize the administration in Washington is a little young . . . " See more »

This one has even the older folks rockin'
28 November 1999 | by (Willow Grove, PA) – See all my reviews

A very entertaining film with music that takes me back to my senior year in high school. Unlike most of these rock n roll movies, this one clearly shows middle aged and even elderly adults enjoying the music of teenagers. I find that refreshing, although mostly unrealistic. I also enjoy watching Georgine Darcy's(Madge) and her "brother" doing their dance routine. Georgine is a real pro and makes the show more enjoyable.(I would love to know how to contact her.) A real neat movie!
