The Cadillacs perform "Please Mr. Johnson" as janitors. Over two decades later, Earl Carroll (aka "Speedo", The Cadillacs' lead singer) was located working as a janitor in a South Bronx elementary school in NYC. He subsequently appeared in an Apollo Anniversary Show in February 1985 performing with The Cadillacs and began touring with the group again. See more »
saw this movie by accident on ACM. having been a teenager in the mid fifties i do not recall ever hearing jimmy Clayton sing. i must say that in the style of other teen throbs of that era who made it big with mediocre talent am surprised he did not make it as well. when you look back at the many singers of that time frame it is truly amazing how many fine singers and singing groups there were especially afro-American performers with huge talent that fell by the wayside.when i watch the singers of today i cant understand what they are singing or what makes them popular compared to those of the years gone by. any way what ever happened to Clayton?
