Great movie of the doo wop music
13 September 2003 | by CEAlbanSee all my reviews

This was a very good movie showing what has happened to some of the old stars of the Doo Wop era, and what happens near the end, I have actually seen at doo wop concerts. I Have the movie on VHS, and cannot wait for it to be available on DVD.
