Trivia

Film debut of Charles Nelson Reilly. He had to introduce a musical act and couldn't get his one line right. He was so funny trying so hard to get the take done that people from all over the lot were arriving to see him flubbing his dialogue. It took over 60 takes to finally get the shot. See more »

Typical basement budget attempt to attract teen audiences in the late 1950s
4 March 2001 | by jcinefanSee all my reviews

Before rock stars went on huge concert tours and before teenagers had enough disposable income to attend such spectacles, Hollywood tried to offer recording stars exposure through cheap movies. LET'S ROCK is typical of the genre--the central idea (that mellow crooner Julius LaRosa could become a rock star) is ludicrous and the acting by LaRosa and Phyllis Newman close to amateur standards. But there are a couple of hits--Danny and The Juniors doing "At the Hop" is the highlight. Every time LaRosa tries to sing, you might as well fast forward. "Rock Around the Clock" remains the best of a bad lot.
