Trivia

The song "China Star" (playing on the radio in the background at approx. 00:10:00) tells the story of a cabaret dancer in Saigon, long before anyone had heard of Viet Nam. This song has not been included on any of the film's soundtrack releases (despite the fact that the "Bob" character predicts "I think that one'll sell a million"). See more »

Rock Baby - Rock It was quite a fascinating regional music film from Dallas, Texas
26 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

This was a regional Rock 'n' Roll movie from Dallas, Texas, that I just watched on YouTube. While I didn't recognize the musical talent nor most of the songs they sang, I enjoyed each and every of them that was showcased. I also liked a dance a woman did at the end. The plot, such as it is, concerned a group of teens trying to save their dance hangout from being taken over by some corrupt businessmen. Not much to hang a drama on and the acting was mostly squaresville. Good thing there's wall-to-wall music most of the time. I mean, what I heard was-to quote the many times these movies had printed certain words on screen at the conclusion of them during this period counting this one-The Living End! So on that note, Rock Baby - Rock It is worth a look for anyone interested in vintage music acts of the late '50s.
