Jack Jones first movie
29 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

The movie also features several Hollywood veterans - Brian Donlevy, George Jessel, Hans Conried, Marjorie Reynolds and Fritz Feld. But this 1960s rocker is more worth seeing for the performances of the Earl Grant Trio ("12th Street Rag" and "Last Night"), Johnnie Otis ("Willie and the Hand Jive") and, of course, the fabulous Treniers ("Get Out of the Car"). For years the Treniers thrilled crowds with their energetic song and dance act on the Las Vegas strip - the only rocking act to do so until Elvis conquered Vegas. Three other movies - Don't Knock the Rock, The Girl Can't Help It and Calypso Heat Wave - showcase their act much better though. This also was The Nitwits Act only film appearance. They were a Spike Jones-type novelty act led by Sid Millward.
