Storyline

It rolled out of Memphis and took the world by surprise. It was a time when Jerry Lee Lewis, with his boogie-style piano playing and flashy performances, was a living legend until he married his thirteen-year-old cousin and caused a national scandal. It was a time when a young Elvis Presley was involved in the legendary Sun label recording sessions and with his tough good looks and sexual gyrations, was creating a phenomenon known as the rock Concert. It was a time when Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, Little Richard and the Everly Brothers were combining Negro rhythm and blues with a country-western sound and 'tearin' it up' all over the Southeast. They all played at one time or another, at the Nashville Jubilee in Nashville, Tennessee. The Nashville Jubilee is known today as the "Birthplace of the Stars".

What a splendid job by all concerned. I was riveted.
21 January 2010 | by StarwishSee all my reviews

This review was sent to me by TV/Film actor, Alex Cord, who did attend the screening. It was not written by "Starwish" aka Ken Farmer.

I saw Rockabilly Baby at a screening in Dallas. As I sat there watching it unfold I felt privileged and grateful to be there. Most of the time on the edge of my seat. What a splendid job by all concerned! I was riveted. And no car chases, extravagant scenery, nudity, blood and violence, just consummate, compelling performances by extraordinarily talented actors.

If the director had the world to choose from he could not have come up with a better cast. Great job of casting and kudos to the director for staying out of their way and letting them rock and roll. The best kind of directing.

My hat is off to Denton Everett, Todd Farr and Brandi Price and all the rest. Denton, Todd and Brandi carried the piece like the giant stars they are bound to become. I was also impressed with the quality of the digital photography. Pretty neat. Thanks for a great experience.
