A terrific rock 'n roll movie

"I saw this film at least a dozen times when it came out in the fifties. I was 15 then, I believe, and just starting to get a love for music that I wanted to consider "mine". Every single song that bacame popular was in it--along with the two great hits of the Platters, up to that time, "Only You" and "The Great Pretender". In my opinion, Bill Haley started it all--Little Richard was great,but Haley was there first. Elvis was king, no doubt about it, but we danced to Bill Haley---the first one in the jukebox at a place near me had "ABC Boogie"---very danceable tune---then "See You Later, Alligator", "Razzle Dazzle", and "Rock-a-Beatin' Boogie", "Happy Baby"---Wow-----you could really dance to those tunes---my parents hated them, of course--as they hated Richard, Elvis and most of the others----they didn't even like Pat Boone----strange that the signature hit "Rock Around the Clock" was never popular (around my city anyway)--it was a bit too fast to dance to-----and believe me,jiving was the thing to do in the fifties. I am so glad to have this movie in my DVD collection and heartily recommend it to any fan who really appreciates fifties rock 'n roll."
