Storyline

This lively documentary celebrates 1950s rock 'n' roll, both through archival clips of the era and concert footage filmed during the '70s. Although the musicians have aged, the performances are remarkably vibrant, with many acts in fine form. Among the many artists featured are Bill Haley and the Comets, Fats Domino, the Shirelles, Little Richard, Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry. In one of the film's highlights, Diddley and Berry take the stage together to the applause of a rapt audience. Written by Ipsith

Needs to be on video
24 September 1999 | by (California) – See all my reviews

The commercial for this movie (which I saw in a shopping mall in, yes, Hicksville, N.Y.) was a kid magnet. We made someone's mom take us in a station wagon. It was double-featured with an older film that had some of the same players.

Little Richard and Chuck Berry's performances were UNREAL. This movie came out at a time when such music seemed completely irrelevant, yet it changed the way I looked at music forever.

cf. American Hot Wax (1978), which has been playing on cable lately.
