  1. As a young kid , in the early sixties, my big brother took me to a local Cinema.
    He had noticed, in the newspaper film section, Rock Around The Clock was showing
    that particular afternoon. With a bag of potato chips and 2 bottles of soda we sat
    down and waited for the film to start… It turned out to be Twist Around The Clock!
    No Platters, no Haley, but Chubby Checker instead demonstrating how to dance the
    Twist. That was one painful experience to look at. Nothing wrong with the Twist,
    but Mr. Checker couldn’t Twist around to save his chubby life. O’ horror!

    Bill Haley marks the beginning of the rock and roll era. Although he did not start or invent this new kind of music he was the first to make it popular all over the world.

    For an Elvis Magazine I am writing an article called ‘Rockers Achter de Dijk’ (Rockers Behind The Dike), and in my research I found out that back in the days they somewhere in Holland screened Rock Around The Clock without the sound because they where afraid of riots, funny story.

  4. The premiere in Amsterdam was at the City theater on the Leidseplein…
    … I recognise the building. It hasn’t changed much in 57 years! Both
    Viva Las Vegas and That’s The Way It Is premiered in that same theater as
    well. I caught them both. Sweet memories. Chunka…chunka…sock a little
    Polk Salad to me…

    The City Theatre has not changed a bit. Even that litle fence with the bikes are still there. Believe them to be different bikes though… ;-) great piece of nostalgia guys!

    I too, remember it well … as my family and I (Willards) were the “VARIETE” mentioned on the billboard (after GROOT ORKEST).
    I must have watched the film 8 or 10 times, mainly to see the audience Rockin’ And Rollin’ in the ailes!
    Wonderful memories!
