Carnival Rock is great fun. A film with rock and roll and melodrama. Iris Adrian does a fun role as a tough blonde dame. The Platters appear and sing a good number. Tony Williams lead vocal is so smooth. Hosted by the Fabulous Mamie Van Doren, I have met Mamie and she is so nice to her fans.I admire her stand on women's and gay rights. A living legend and one of the last stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood.
The story is silly and d-r-a-g-s on much too long with a lot of melodramatic corn. For Rockabilly fans this one is worth watching to see Bob Luman perform. Note a very young, pre-Elvis James Burton playing hot licks in Bob's band.
Christy, owner of a seedy nightclub, loves Natalie. But Natalie loves a clean-cut gambler, and Christy is going a bit mad because of it. Yawn. Well, this is a forgettable film. If you're going to see it at all, see the Exploitica version.
