Rock ‘n’ Roll Week Round Up!

Phew! We did it! Sam and I set out to spend a week reviewing rock n’ roll flicks for the week of July 19th to the 25th and went overboard – as is the B&S About Movies modus operandi — with 55 films. Things got so nuts — why do I let Sam’s brilliant ideas for “theme weeks” get me into these messes — that we also did a special “Drive-In Saturday” featurette to go with our usual “Drive-In Friday” weekly feature.

And we still didn’t get to them all!

So be on the lookout for our “Rock ‘n’ Roll Week II” rolling out the week of September 20th to the 26th with another 50-plus films.

No Sleep ’til Sunrise!
