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, he 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.
Running Time: 85 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: NR
The skimpy plot of Rock! Rock! Rock! (Will Price 1956 with Tuesday Weld, Johnny Burnette and the Rock and Roll Trio, Chuck Berry, Alan Freed) concerns Weld's travails in raising money for a prom dress, the acting is not too great, but who the hell cares? It's just a skeleton for Alan Freed (who should have been discouraged from singing) to hang a bunch of rock & roll songs on. See the Burnette boys burn it up in their only film appearance, Chuck Berry duck-walks through "You Can't Catch Me," LaVerne Baker and Frankie Lyman and the Teenagers perform, and if you watch closely you'll see Valerie Harper. Unfortunately, you also have to sit through some no-namers and Connie Francis providing some songs for Tuesday to lip-sync to, but that's what your FF button is for. (Jerry Renshaw)
A young teenage girl desperately tries to earn enough money to buy a dress for a school rock and roll dance. This early rock and roll feature includes an appearance by disc jockey Alan Freed, and performances by artists including Chuck Berry, LaVern Baker, and Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers.
