" The greatest rock 'n' roll music played by the biggest rock 'n' roll groups this side of heaven!"

-- Synopsis: Dori, is a high school girl played by 13 year old Tuesday Weld who schemes to get herself a new prom dress because daddy (Jack Collins) has cut off her allowence and can not attend the Rock and Roll prom without one. DJ Alan Freed is the host of the prom.


* If you're a fan of the early days of Rock and Roll, then this is a must see. Most of the dancing is of the East Coast Swing type with no real Jitterbug or Lindy dancing however the East Coast Swing is pretty good for Stock dancers and the music is excellent.
