Product Details

Twist Around the Clock Designed to cash in on the phenomenally popular American dance craze, this colorful and song-filled outing follows a rock & roll manager as he attempts to popularize the twist. The film is an updated remake of Rock Around the Clock and features such popular singers as Chubby Checker and Dion belting out such hits as "Merry Twist-mas," Runaround Sue," "The Wanderer," "Twist Around the Clock," "Don't Twist with Anyone Else But Me," "Here, There, Everywhere," "The Twist Is Here to Stay" and "The Majestic." Don't Knock the Twist One of an outcropping of "twist" dance craze movies to pop up like mushrooms after a rain, this standard musical drama by director Oscar Rudolph is actually a sequel to producer Sam Katzman's earlier success, Twist around the Clock. The plot on which the many twist dances hinge is the preparation for a TV variety show on the twist. While the special is still in the production stages, jealousies lead to problems -- and a lot of dancing. Performers featured as themselves include Chubby Checker, Vic Dana, Linda Scott, The Dovells, and the Carroll Brothers -- all popular in the early '60s.
