Movie Info

Rock, Rock, Rock stars 13-year-old Tuesday Weld, who looks 11 if she's a day. Even so, Weld's Dori is trying to get together enough money to buy a strapless gown (she's far more self-confident than she should be at this biological stage of the game). Daddy has cut off Dori's allowance, but gee, she's gotta go to the prom. Nevermind all that, you'll want to see Rock, Rock, Rock for its dynamite lineup of guest stars. In alphabetical order: LaVerne Baker, Chuck Berry, the Johnny Burnette Trio, Jimmy Cavallo House Rockers, Cirino and the Bowties, the Coney Island Kids, the Flamingos, Frankie Lyman and the Teenagers, the Moonglows, and Teddy Randazzo. As a bonus, Connie Francis provides Tuesday Weld's singing voice. And say, kids, it's Alan Freed serving up platters 'n' chatters and stax o' wax on prom night. This marked Valerie Harper's film debut; she was in her teens at the time.

There's some kind of plot here, all about getting a dress for the high school dance, that's more of a clue as to who the perceived audience for this genre film is meant to be for than a script. The rest is Alan Freed introducing popular acts of the time who yelp ersatz poetry about "rock music is here to stay!" That being said, Chuck Berry and Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers are pretty good. And the dancers. Eh.

This rare gem is a good old musical of all the oldies with some really bad acting and lip singing. WHO CARES! It's OLDIES! Highly recommended for those who are into oldies.

I really liked this movie, it's fun, there's some great 50s rock n roll and many young actors in a funny story. Check it out.
