50’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Musical ‘Go, Johnny, Go!’ Comes to Home Video October 17th!

The 1950’s rock ‘n’ roll scene is something I cannot get enough of. The music, the style, the drive-in movie theaters and fast food burger joints, the soda fountains, all of it seems so magical to me. It’s like an era of time that can never be duplicated and for someone who didn’t get to experience it almost feels like something that never existed. Whether or nostalgic for a bygone era or you want to transport yourself to somewhere you’ve never been, Go, Johnny, Go! may very well be the movie for you.

Released in 1959, Go, Johnny, Go! is a film that gathered the best musicians of the day and put them all in one film together to compete in a talent show. In short, this looks wonderful. VCI Entertainment is gearing up to release the film on DVD on October 17th, allowing us all to go back to a happier time.

Go, Johnny, Go!
Rock & Roll changed 1950s America at 45 revolutions per minute, and the swinging-est of the R&R movies was the electrifying Go, Johnny, Go!. Hung on the loose storyline of d.j. great Alan Freed’s search for the next big star are way-out performances by all-time greats: Alan Freed, Chuck Berry, Ritchie Valens, Jimmy Clanton, Jackie Wilson, Eddie Cochran, Harvey Fuqua, Jo-Ann Campbell, The Cadillacs, The Flamingos, Jimmy Cavallo, with Sandy Stewart, Herb Vigran, Frank Wilcox, and Barbara Woodell.
