Greatest Beatnik 60's Folksinging Movie Musical of All Time!!
11 July 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Once upon a Coffeehouse released as Hootenanny A-Go-Go on DVD is about a wealthy conservative playboy from New York who buys a rundown Miami Coffee seeking the affections of a singer there and trying to fit in with her beatnik friends along with their passion for bongos,tight clothes and of course caffeine.The original intention of the movie was to showcase the uninterrupted mostly folksinging which was probably at it's peak in the early to mid 60's featuring a very young Joan Rivers who was part of the Greenwich Village folksinging comedy trio of Jim,Jake and Joan,this was her first movie appearance which shortly afterward she went solo and of course became very famous.Also there were superb performances by the late Curt Boettcher and the Goldebriars ,The Free Wheelers and Oscar Brand.This movie is a must see with a very 60's nostalgic look.
