Rock You Sinners
" Early British Rock and Roll at it's Worst"

-- Synopsis: This corny British Rock film is about Johnny (Philip Gilbert) who is a hip disc jockey who gets catapulted to stardom via his own TV show. His fame comes a little too fast however and he starts to alienate everyone around him, including his faithful girlfriend Carol (Adrienne Scott.) Will he choose Love or Success? British rock and roll music from Tony Crombie and his Rockets, the Rockin' Sinners, Rory Blackwell and the Blackjacks, Don Sollash and his Rocking Horses, many others. The USA was much better in their rock music at the time.

* The dancing is somewhat better than the music. Jackie Collins does the Shimmy and shakes wildly to almost all the songs. Some East Coast Swing ala Jitterbug-Jive dancing as well.
