The film version of the song "Slow Twistin'" has an extra verse that does not appear on the single or album. Additionally, in the 2010 edition of the film, some words have been deleted, towards the end of the song, which may indicate the presence of "suggestive" lyrics. See more »

T.V. Exec Uses Mashed Potato to Stomp Out the Competition.
Ted Haver (Lang Jeffries) is a harried TV exec who must orchestrate an epic "Twist Spectacular" to beat the competing broadcast network. Lang recruits Chubby Checker and other "top talent" like the Linda Scott. He also discovers -- via a Peeping Tom session -- neighborhood "teen" Madge and her "brother" doing the wildest Twist steps, and he convinces her to be in the show ("I'll do it for the Orphans!") Lang's gal pal, Dulcey Corbin, gets jealous of Madge and uses her latest "Twist" fashions to stir up controversy. Film Highlight: Nightclub revelers demonstrate piety during Vic Dana's somber rendition of "Little Altar Boy".
