Did You Know?

Trivia

Frankie Avalon is seen here as a pre-teenager, in dungarees, just months before his breakthrough hit of "Dee Dee Dinah" was released and Frankie was seen on "American Bandstand" as a new teen idol. This transformation was alluded to in "The Idolmaker"(1980), the story of Rock promoter Bob Marcucci , who worked with Frankie Avalon and others. See more »

Goofs

It is obvious that Buddy Knox and his group are lip-synching to their record "Hula Love" since their electric guitars are not plugged in. This is also true of every other act in the movie that uses electric instruments. See more »

Rock 'n' roll, rockabilly and jazz entertainers shine.
3 October 2000 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

Pitiful plot and sorry as a movie. But the real stars performing makes for good viewing. A young couple played by Freda Holloway and Paul Carr want to be famous singers. Kay Medford plays the agitating manager that manipulates the two songbirds,that don't even come near professionalism; let alone sing good rock 'n' roll. Although the singing voice of Holloway is that of singer Connie Francis.

Also in the cast are disc jockey Dick Clark and songwriter Aaron Schroder. Schroder in the real world wrote many hit songs; the best were for Elvis Presley and Gene Pitney.

Some of the real stars of this film, doing their thing for the camera are: Jerry Lee Lewis, Frankie Avalon, Fats Domino, Charlie Gracie, Buddy Knox, Count Basie, Slim Whitman and Carl Perkins.

The plot is a flop and the music is hip. Turn the lights on low and GO! Daddyo! GO!
