In Don't Knock The Twist TV executive Lang Jeffries is told to take advantage of
that latest dance craze The Twist and put together a television special featuring
the latest rock and roll acts. Since Jeffries good buddy is none other than
Chubby Checker he's got it made.
But girlfriend fashion designer Mari Blanchard has some ideas of her own especially
after Jeffries discovers Georgina Darcy and Stephen Miller doing some wild and crazy dance routines. Her machinations almost ruin things for the twisters young

Checker doing a very good job playing Chubby Checker.
For those nostalgic for the era.
