Movie Info

A frustrated big-band promoter runs into rock-and-rollers Bill Haley and the Comets at a small-town dance. He quickly becomes their manager and, with the help of Alan Freed, hopes to bring the new sound to the entire country. But will a conniving booking agent, with a personal ax to grind with the manager, conspire to keep the band from making the big time?

If you can tune out the corny story, the music is a good trip down memory lane.

Audience Reviews for Rock Around the Clock

½

Watchable only if you're interested in seeing one of the original rock and roll bands -- Bill Haley and the Comets -- in action. Otherwise, it's terribly dated and almost painful to sit through. It's hard to believe that bands like Led Zeppelin, The Who and Metallica could have evolved from this. But they did, and as square as they seem today, the Comets deserve a little respect.
