Movie Summary

1957
Rating:
Not Available
Bop Girl, a 1957 United Artists film, attempts to capitalize on the calypso craze of the 1950s. Musicologist Bob Hilton (Bobby Troup) is convinced this fad called rock-and-roll is on its way out of the music scene and calypsomania is about to sweep the country. He's even invented a machine to prove his theory, an applause meter. Club manager Barney (George O'Hanlon) and singer Jo Thomas (Judy Tyler) don't believe their meal ticket is in danger. Barney and Bob come to blows, but Bob and Jo are soon arm in arm. This causes a romantic complication with Marion (Margo Woods). The academic has been looking to marry Bob and have a child to further her work in eugenics. Musical acts from rock-and-roll, rhythm and blues and, of course, calypso, are laced into the script. United Artists rushed to release the film but it was still the third calypso-themed movie to be released in the mid-'50s, following Calypso Joe and Calypso Heatwave.moreless
