Movie Info

In this tuneful teen drama, two disparate high school students, he a street-wise Italian rebel and she a sweet naive Jewish girl, fall in love while preparing for the annual "Sing," a competition between seniors and the other grades attending Brooklyn schools. It is the caring school music teacher who involves the street-tough, for he sees tremendous talent in the youth. With the help of the teacher and the affection of the young woman, the angry youngster, mends his self-destructive ways and makes the annual musical a smashing success.

Cool teen film with a commendable twist: no car chases! Actually, this is a cross between Lady and the Tramp and Fame.

One more time, I'll sing a song. There's a power in my voice that's hopeful and strong. Years from now somewhere down line, and we'll all sing one more time. That's what a remember, and I always get it stuck in my head. I loved this movie as a kid.
