Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
One of an outcropping of "twist" dance craze movies to pop up like mushrooms after a rain, this standard musical drama by director Oscar Rudolph is actually a sequel to producer Sam Katzman's earlier success, Twist around the Clock. The plot on which the many twist dances hinge is the preparation for a TV variety show on the twist. While the special is still in the production stages, jealousies lead to problems -- and a lot of dancing. Performers featured as themselves include Chubby Checker, Vic Dana, Linda Scott, The Dovells, and the Carroll Brothers -- all popular in the early '60s.
