    It was in Amsterdan, in the City theater, sometime in the 1970s when
    there was a special one night screening of The Girl … Before that the Legendary
    Tielman Brothers did a half hour live performance. Dressed Elvis 70s style, they
    didn’t cut it for me that night. The Girl is considered by many rock n roll fans
    the best 50s music movie … Little Richard was great indeed, and so was Gene
    and The Blue Caps in a ‘butchered’ Be Bop a Lula. Eddie looked and sounded
    the part … but I had to chuckle seeing him try to move his body to the beat …
    Besides Fats, I wasn’t familiar with the other performers (hey, remember, this
    was back in the 70s!) and none really impressed me one bit. Leaving the cinema
    that night had me think: nice movie, fun movie, but in no way up to the music
    standards of the pre-Army Elvis movies …
    To this day, Loving You is still by far the best rock n roll movie ever made …

    I just LOVE this Rock N Roll movie, and own it on dvd and the soundtrack on cd. Sure, Loving You and Jailhouse Rock by Elvis are better, but there are some great Rock N Roll songs here by some of the originaters of this new BIG BEAT … and in colour.
    And Jayne Mansfield was so much more sexier to look at than Marilyn Monroe.
