I not only saw this movie, I appeared in it.
28 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I am delighted to hear that this short has not been lost. I have not seen it since 1961 and would like to do so. Where can I get a copy? I was the sax player (Frankie Roberts) in the band called "The Millionaires," which was one of the most popular rock & roll bands in Chicago during the early 60's. We worked regularly with disk jockey Jim Lounsbury, appearing at his record hops throughout the Midwest and on his afternoon television show called "Chicago Bandstand." Along with Jim and Joe Cavalier, a dance sensation in the twist clubs, hit singer Ral Donner also appeared, as did radio personality Sig Sagowitz, and Frankie DeSanti,"The King of the Twist",and star attraction at Flo's Kit Kat Club, where the movie was filmed.It took three days to shoot this film, which played for months as a "filler" in theaters everywhere. Top billing actually went to Sandra Keto, one of the first Playboy bunnies at the "new" Playboy Club.If I can recall correctly (after 43 years), the original title was "Dance Craze." I would love to hear from anyone who has seen this film. Once again, where can I get a copy?
