Mister Rock and Roll, produced in 1957, showcases some of the world's rock and roll legends. Alan Freed, playing himself, sets out to prove that rock and roll doesn't cause juvenile delinquency. Freed was a famous disc jockey and concert producer in the late 1950's. He often was referred to as "The Father of Rock and Roll" and "Moondog". Freed's best known line from the movie is "If I'm guilty of anything, I'm guilty of being present at the birth of rock 'n' roll!" Produced as rock and roll was sweeping the world, the performances of music greats such as Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers, The Moonglows, Lavern Baker, Teddy Randazzo, Clyde McPhatter and Brook Benton still resonate with rock and roll fans. Little Richard, sings "Lucille" and Chuck Berry sings "Baby Doll". The movie also features performances by Lionel Hampton and Ferlin Husky. There are also several short comedy acts including those by ex-boxer Rocky Graziano and the team of Fisher and Marks.moreless
