Working from the screwball poetry of John Kaye’s script, Floyd Mutrux made this multi-storied celebration of the power of early rock’n’roll as pioneering disc jockey Alan Freed (Tim McIntire) prepares for a big show at the Brooklyn Paramount while battling the squares who want to shut him down. With appearances from Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry.
