  • A Jamboree of Early Rock 'N Roll Teens

    • 4/18/14

    The film clearly does not deserve it as far as stories and performances are concerned but I'll give it three stars only because of the performers you will see throughout the very, very thin story line. It is about two teens who have had great success as a duo now being upended by their managers, Grace Show and Lew Arthur, played by Kay Medford, who is totally unrecognizable outside of her uniquely accented voice and Robert Pastene. They are busy looking for solo careers for each of their clients in the early days of Rock N Roll. It, of course, includes a love angle for the teens and is peppered by introductions of the singers and groups by the popular Disc Jockey's of that era, including the always youthful Dick Clark. The backdrop is a charitable event with all the acts raising money for an unknown, unnamed disease! Most of the performers are still in the infancy of their careers and Frankie Avalon looks as though he is just out of grammar school but his inclusion is paramount in the production as are the appearance of Fats Domino, Buddy Knox, Joe Williams with Count Basie & Orchestra, Slim Whitman, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Jimmy Bowen as well as the precursor to Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers...his brother Lewis Lymon and the Teenchords! A few additional and sundry artists are thrown in for good measure. Connie Francis sings the voice overs for the female lead, Freda Holloway as Honey Wynn with Paul Carr singing his own songs as Pete Porter. You will hear an unreleased version of Great Balls of Fire and a few other songs associated with the artists but many that you won't remember. It is kind of a fun movie and I've actually seen worse but it's worth a chuckle since you'll be reduced to a bit of a nostalgic sing-along in spite of yourself!
