I couldn't believe it when I saw "Don't Knock the Twist" (1961) on next week's list of films. "Why?" you might ask.

This is one of the B movies that were meant to be played before the main feature at the drive-in or as part of a double feature in a theater. They had the top rock and roll acts of the day to appeal to kids and plots to show those parents who might see it that rock & roll wasn't all that bad. BUT!!!

In 1965 there was a movie called "Don't Knock the Rock." I'm sure I saw them both when they came out, but a few years ago I had a chance to see them back-to-back.  IT'S EXACTLY THE SAME SCRIPT, with the word "twist" used instead of the word "rock."

Same producer, same writer (used a different name in "Twist") only the cast was changed. Go figure.
