Check your inbox It certainly isn't the first film to have been inspired by a hit song but Rock Around the Clock was the first movie to showcase the new music of the fifties - rock 'n' roll - in a low-budget diversion targeted directly at teenage audiences.
Although the song was previously heard over the opening credits to Blackboard Jungle a year earlier, where it caused a sensation, it was this unpretentious feature that really capitalized on the hit record and the musicians behind it, Bill Haley and His Comets. Masterminded by producer Sam Katzman, with Fred F. Sears directing, Rock Around the Clock was responsible for spawning countless imitations including Katzman's sequel Don't Knock the Rock but the original has a nervous energy and sense of fun that is hard to resist.
Serving as the archetype for the many teen musicals that would follow, Rock Around the Clock presents an obscurity-to-fame scenario where an unknown band comes out of nowhere in this case a small town called Strawberry Springs to become the headliners at a New York concert hosted by the country's hippest disc jockey, Rock Around The Clock, Alan Freed playing himself.
It all begins when band manager Steve Hollis Johnny Johnstonbored with his current gig, hits the road, looking for a fresh new sound to revive his career and interest in popular music. As soon as he hears Bill Haley and His Comets' brand of swing, boogie and rhythm and blues, his calling is clear.
The fact that he's also extremely attracted to Haley's manager, Lisa Johns Lisa Gayeis just icing on the cake. While the plot and the actors are serviceable at best, the real attraction here, of course, is the music which includes six songs by Bill Haley and His Comets including the title song played twice"See You Later Alligator," and "Razzle Dazzle. Hefty, stiff in manner and well past the age of his screaming fans, he certainly doesn't look hip but his music proves the opposite as his rocking rhythms send the teenagers into a gyrating frenzy.
